- Worth a visit -
For centuries, Stykkishómur has been a centre of trade, service and transport for the Breiðafjörður area. The village is still an ideal destination for those who are visiting the Breiðafjörður area, the Snæfellsnes peninsula, the Dalir valleys and the Borgarfjörður district. The current road distance from Reykjavík to Stykkishólmur is 215 km, but it will be reduced to 165 km once the Hvalfjörður tunnel is opened.
Regular coaches serve the villages on the north coast of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. The car ferry Baldur sails across Breiðafjörður Bay to Brjánslækur twice a day during the summer months, stopping at the island of Flatey on the way, offering travellers the opportunity of a half-day's visit to this historical site.
