Stokkseyri

Along the coastal road to Stokkseyri stands the Knarrarós lighthouse towering above the horizon, resembling a church steeple. A new role for the disused fish factory in Stokkseyri has culminated in the Culture House which hosts ghosts, trolls and elves as well as Northern Lights. These three museums are the heart of the town and indicative of how the tourism industry has taken over from the fishing industry. A humble cottage called Þuríðarbúð, erected in 1949 in honour of Þuríður Einarsdóttir, fishing captain and solver of crimes stands amongst the homes of locals. The wild ocean along the coastline of Stokkseyri is a beautiful force to behold.
