The fishing town of Snæfellsnes
This town, located in the West of Iceland, makes part of the Snæfellsnes Peninsula area. Stykkishólmur’s favorable location is used to serve as a gateway to Flatey Island, located up North of Stykkishólmur. Fishing and tourism are the two main economic activities of this town, and it was one of the oldest trading posts in the country dated back to the mid-16th century.
If you are an environmentalist (we should all be by now), you are going to love Stykkishólmur. They are the first community in Europe to get the EarthCheck environmental certification. Their daily environmentally friendly lifestyles made possible to check all the environmental indicators. This town is a must to visit.
