Day 5: Beautiful things don't ask for attention
Approximate distance: ca330km / 200miles
Was it Greenland? Was it Iceland? In Stykkisholmur you'll encounter the picturesque setting from which Mitty soared with the drunken helicopter pilot.
A boat tour to admire the rich birdlife and sea life around the isles of Breidafjordur is included in the trip*! And seeing as you are really stepping out of your comfort zone already, we recommend you taste the wonderful selection of shellfish and sea life which will be caught fresh from the ocean: scallops, sea urchins, crabs, starfish, sea cucumbers and much more.
After the boat tour you can either explore the countless natural wonders of the Snaefellsnes peninsula such as Arnarstapi sea cliffs with its varied birdlife and the rocky beach of Djupalonssandur before driving along the north coast through lively fishing villages. Or spend the rest of the day roaming around town and locating some of the houses found in the movie. Don't forget to ask some of the locals for interesting inside information on the filming process in Stykkisholmur!
Overnight in Stykkisholmur
*Please note: The boat tour is only available from 18th May to 15th September. If the tour is not available we will book for you Whale Watching from Reykjavik on day 1.
