Stykkisholmur is the largest town in Snaefellsnes and nestles on the peninsula's northern shores. It has a rich history as a fishing town, dating back centuries to its origins as a small settlement. 

The town's strategic location along the coast provided easy access to abundant fishing grounds in the surrounding waters of Breidafjordur bay and the North Atlantic Ocean. As early as the 16th century, Stykkisholmur became a fishing and maritime trade hub, attracting settlers who relied on the sea for sustenance and livelihood.

Additionally, the town gained international fame as one of the shooting locations for the acclaimed film "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." This comedy-drama film, directed by and starring Ben Stiller, was shot in several locations in Iceland, including Stykkisholmur.
