Great base for Snæfellsnes. Enough to do in poor weather yet great when picks up. Nice array of museums and restaurants

I love the churches of Iceland.. from the tiny and quaint, to these monoliths. They always seem to be built to be viewed and appreciated from afar, and this is no different. It towers over the town and during our visit was stark white against a dark and rainy sky. So beautiful. I found, however, that I liked it much better from afar, than from up close. Up close it is so massive that you can only view bits and pieces. From afar, you can see the architecture of the entire church.

It’s very easy to get to from the main part of town, and is only a drive of a couple minutes. You don’t have to spend long here if you are short on time, but it is worth the stop.

Beautiful modern church of unusual design, inaugurated 1990. Located close to central town area in a high prominent position affording wonderful views over the surrounding area and the nearby islands.
Well worth a visit - either by car to front, or walk if you are closer. Does not open until mid morning.

We stopped in Stykkisholms to track down the bar from Walter Mitty (found it down by the harbor!). Drove up to the church just to marvel at the architecture; I love how the countryside churches are all little red churches with steeples and the urban churches are very modernistic. Great view of the city below as well.
