Location & Nearby
Lagholt Apartments are close to the center of Stykkisholmur, a town on the northern edge of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The town is roughly 100 miles (170 kilometers) north of Reykjavik.
The apartments are ideally located for exploring the town of Stykkisholmur on foot. The Sugandisey lighthouse is less than 1 mile (about 1.2 kilometers) away, and the striking Stykkisholmskirkja church is around 0.5 miles (0.9 kilometers) away. The town is also home to a volcano museum, and to the Library of Water. This is an unusual but very calming artistic display that showcases water sculptures – well worth a visit.
It’s also just a 10-minute walk to the town’s ferry port. From here, guests can take the Baldur ferry over to the remote Westfjords, or stop off at Flatey Island. This remote island is a good destination if you want to visit somewhere quiet and peaceful. It’s also packed with interesting birdlife, such as the famed Arctic puffin.
Visitors can hire kayaks or take boat trips from the Stykkisholmur port. The town also has several restaurants and cafés, supermarkets, and a swimming pool. You’ll find everything you need, all within walking distance of the apartments – there’s even a golf club.
When you’re ready to go further afield, the apartments are only 6 miles (10 kilometers) from Route 54. This is the main road that winds around the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. From here, it’s easy to reach the best sights in the area. Kirkjufell mountain is 25 miles (40 kilometers) from the property, while the Gerduberg basalt cliffs are 30 miles (50 kilometers) away. The Ytri Tunga beach, 30 miles (50 kilometers) from the apartments, is a great place to see seals.
For many people, the main attraction of visiting the Snaefellsnes Peninsula is a trip to Snaefellsjokull National Park. This is only 55 miles (90 kilometers) from Lagholt Apartments, so it’s easy to visit this spectacular park for a day trip too.
