If you only stay in Grundarfjörður for one day we recommend the walks in Grundafjörður, you can go Kayaking, or go whale watching with Láki, and we recommend the restaurant Bjargarsteinn. Here are some of the things you can do in Grundarfjörður. And it´s always nice to end the day by whatching the sunset from our balcony.
If you stay longer, these are our suggestions:
Day 2. Drive to Stykkishólmur. But instead of driving straight we recommend that (about 10 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 at the Shark museum. When in Stykkishólmur we recommend “Sæferðir”. The Viking Sushi Adventure. Very fine tours. And to finish the day, there is a very good restaurant in Stykkishólmur, Narfeyrarstofa. But when you go home again you take the gravel road, about 19 km from Stykkishólmur (I will put a picture of where you turn left). That is a gravel road in Berserkjahraun. It´s really beautiful, 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, but if you still got time there is a beatiful waterfall right next to Ólafsvík, Svöðufoss.
Ólafsvík has got a 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 end the day with a glass of wine and see the sunset on our balcony.
