Along the coastal road to Stokkseyri stands the Knarrarós lighthouse towering above the horizon, resembling a church steeple. The village is famous for its art and cultural studios run by various artists. A new role for the disused fish factory in Stokkseyri has culminated in the Culture House which hosts ghosts, elves and Northern Lights museum. The 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.
