An easy day trip from Reykjavik, these two charming towns 34 mi/55 km south of the capital are full of historic houses and have interesting museums that illustrate the area's history and commitment to fishing. One such museum is Eyrarbakki's Folk Museum. If you want to further explore the coast's natural side, try sea kayaking or simply meander along the beach. If you're in the area for dinner, we recommend eating at Vid Fjorubordid, famous for its lobster feast, served year-round.
Other attractions include Stokkseyri's Ghost Museum and the Knarraros lighthouse, built in 1939 in art-nouveau style.
