Well worth the detour to go to this little gem with amazing ocean views. The little town is adorable and very quiet. Well worth the walk up to the little lighthouse too.

We climbed Sugandisey to get a view of the lighthouse and pictures of the bay. It was a nice day out. The lighthouse is very small, but it's cute. The views of the bay are beautiful. It's not a hard climb - maybe 50 steps....More

A "must stop" while in Stykkisholmur. The view is beautiful. My hubby enjoyed the old lighthouse. You should definitely make time for a stroll thru this area.

The whole harbor area of Stykkisholmur is stunning, but making the climb up here is well worth it... Once you make it to the top, you will be rewarded with fantastic views of the town, harbor, and the fjords in the distance. Simply beautiful...
