Arnarstapi fishing village

A traditional fishing village in Snæfellsness peninsula

Another geology masterpiece of Iceland you will find near Arnarstapi Fishing Village. This tiny fishing village has picturesque coastal cliffs derived from glowing magma hitting the wild waves of the Atlantic. Known in Iceland as the most beautiful harbor in the country.
