Stykkishólmur is a charming town with beautifully maintained old houses. It has an industrious harbour where boat trips around Breiðarfjörður are offered as well as the ferry Baldur to Flatey island and Brjánslækur in the West Fjords.

The Norwegian House serves as a regional museum for the Snæfellsnes area and it is worth visiting. If you are interested in seeing the interplay of light, glass and water from every glacier in Iceland, then the Museum of Water is the place to go. If volcanoes excite you more, visit the Volcano Museum. At the Icelandic Eider Center you can learn about the history of eiderdown harvesting.

There is an excellent swimming pool, good camping site, accommodation and restaurants in town.
