An obligatory stop en route to the West Fjords region, Stykkishólmur, the first town on the Snæfellsnes Peninsula, occupies a strategic position on the tourist routes. While the village continues to live from fishing and boat repair, it has backed tourism for the future. Renovated in the 1980s, its old wooden houses contribute to its spruce charm, along with the colourful little boats reflected in the waters of the port.
