Last week I went on a tour around Snæfellsnes with Iceland Horizon. One of the stops we made was Arnarstapi. A long time ago Arnarstapi was a flourishing little town, mostly because it was an important trading port and because it functioned as a commercial centre.
These days it’s mostly thriving because of tourism. Arnarstapi attracts lots of tourists because of the natural beauty of the place and the proximity to Snæfellsjökull. Along the coast you find the most amazing basalt columns, beautiful cliffs and different seabird colonies.
