Fosshotel Stykkishólmur

Fosshotel Stykkishólmur is a 3-star hotel located in the beautiful fishing village of Stykkishólmur.

Stykkishólmur, sometimes called the town of a thousand islands, is in the Northern part of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The town exudes a charming ambiance, thanks to its vintage homes that transport you to a bygone era.

With a population of approximately 1,100 people,  Stykkishólmur saw its first development in 1550, when the natural harbour allowed for the creation of a trading post. The town experienced further development while the Danish Trade Monopoly was in place. 

Perfectly positioned for an adventure in West Iceland, Fosshotel Stykkishólmur is close to key attractions such as the Norwegian House, the Shark Museum, and the Library of Water. Moreover, the harbour is a hub of activity, offering ferry trips to Flatey Island and the Westfjords.  

Want to explore further afield? The Snaefellsnes peninsula is a paradise for adventurers, featuring lava fields, basalt cliffs, legendary caves, and the Snæfellsjökull glacier. It is also home to Kirkjufell, or Church Mountain, which stands 463 meters above sea level and is said to be the most photographed mountain in Iceland.

Interesting places and scenery near Fosshotel Stykkishólmur, West Iceland

Snæfellsjökull National Park and Glacier

One of the most famous landmarks in Iceland, Snæfellsjökull is a 700,000-year-old stratovolcano with a glacier cap, situated on the most western part of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The crater served as the entrance to the fantastical subterranean world in Jules Verne’s classic 1864 novel, Journey to the Centre of the Earth and the Peninsula also found fame in the 90s when thousands of people congregated to welcome aliens to Earth. There must be something magical in the air around Snæfellsjökull though – for centuries it has been considered a source of power, mysticism, and energy amongst the superstitious locals and its reputation holds strong.

Kirkjufell Mountain

If committing your Icelandic adventure to film is an essential consideration, be sure to visit the most photographed mountain in Iceland – Kirkjufell. Rising 463m above sea level, this perfectly symmetrical cone is an unmissable part of west Iceland’s coastal skyline. As well as being a photographer’s dream, the beautiful nature trails and abundant bird life of the mountain make it an ideal destination for those who can’t get enough of the Great Outdoors. Stand beside the Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall for the best view of this iconic mountain.

Breiðafjörður Bay

The wide, shallow bay of Breiðafjörður is one of the best destinations for nature lovers in west Iceland. The region is made up of around 3,000 islands, islets, and skerries, all playing host to around 50 breeding birds, including the common shag, puffin, and the magnificent white-tailed eagle. Hop aboard a boat tour to make the most of this diverse natural environment, admiring the fairy-tale scenery and maybe even sampling a taste of fresh-off-the-boat shellfish enroute.
