A city like something out of a movie
03/2021 Our first stop of the day was at Erpsstaðir Creamery. Eating a delicious homemade ice cream is a must here. Then we went on to Stykkisholmur.
The small town of Stykkisholmur is located in the north of the Iceland. Anyone who knows the film "The Amazing Life of Walter Mitty" will surely remember the scene when he jumps from a restaurant into a helicopter that is taking off. This is exactly what was filmed here at the port of Stykkisholmur. The snow-capped mountains in the background create an incredible panorama with the small coastal town in the front.
Another highlight was the Kirkjufellsfoss. The waterfall, which is usually photographed with the pointed mountain in the background, is a popular Icelandic motif. From there we continued past Bjarnarfoss to our hotel, the Langaholt Guesthouse.
