Suggestins: What to do when staying in Grundarfjörður for moer than a day.
If you only stay in Grundarfjörður for one day we reccomend the walks in Grundafjörður, you can go Kayaking, or go whalewhathing with Láki, and we expecially reccomend the restaurant Bjargarsteinn. And it´s always nice to end the day by whatching the sunset from our balkony.
If you stay longer, these are our suggestions:
Day 2. Drive to Stykkishólmur. But instead of driwing straight we reccomend that (xx km from Grundarfjörður) you take a left turn and visit the Shark Museum. From there you drive the same road until you are in Stykkishólmur. This takes about 50 minutes plus the time you spend in the Shark museum. When in Stykkishólmur we reccomen “Sæferðir”. Very fine tours. And to finish the day, there is a very good restaurant in Stykkiishólmur, Narfeyrarstofa. But when you go homa again you take the gravel road (I will put a picture of where you turn left). That is a gravel road in Berserkjahraun. Its really beutiful, you will be driving through the old lava. The drive back home takes about 1-1,5 hours.
Day 3. Drive towards Ólfsvík, but when you are about 5 km from Ólafsvík take a left turn (I will show it in a picture here later) and drive over the mountain range. You will be on the other side of the mountain in about 40-50 minutes. When you are over the mountain take a right turn. First stop is Arnarstapi, it´s a crime not to visit Arnarstapi.
From there we recommend a short walk to Fjöruhúsið, situated in Hellnar. There you can grab a bite, have some coffe of a beer.
From there (You have probably spent 4 hours by now) you should go to Djúpalónssandur.
After all of that you are very likely hungry. So now you drive on and go to Ólafsvík. Ólafsvík has got one very good restaurant, Skerið. We recommend to order there in advance. And after a good meal, it´s time to go home. Now you have circled the pensula. And again, it´s nice to see the sunset again from our balcony.
