ALL ROADS LEAD TO GRUNDARFJORDUR
Welcome to the beautiful West
Grundarfjordur is a village of 900 people, set in a beautiful location by the sea, sheltered by mountains, where Kirkjufell mountain is the best known. At restaurant Bjargarsteinn you will have an unforgettable meal in a stunning setting and a whale watching trip with Laki Tours is a must. We recommend driving around Snaefellsnes peninsula and exploring the Snaefellsjokull glacier national park.
You can go to the Vatnshellir cave and to the summit of the glacier, connecting with both heaven and earth. If you want to hike up there, we recommend GoWest tours. Our favorite café in the area is the small Fjoruhusid, down by the sea at Hellnar. In Rif there is Frystiklefinn, a super cool theatre run by a young local actor. During summer they have great performances in English based on local history.
It´s really worth spending a day in Stykkisholmur, which is the oldest town of Snaefellsnes. There you can find a few museums, and artists´ workshops. Flatey island in Breidafjordur bay is one of our favorite places on the planet. It´s like going 100 years back in time. Check out trips to Flatey with Seatours who also offer some great boat trips.
