Resting at the foot of Mount Stapafell on the Snaefellsnes Peninsula in western Iceland, the small town of Arnarstapi once served as an important trading post. Today it serves as a gateway to the Snaefellsjokull National Park - a rugged wonderland of glaciers, ravines and ancient lava fields and breathtaking vistas. The scenic highlight of the village is Gatklettur Cliff, a huge stone arch carved by the crashing waves of the ocean over centuries. The large, arctic tern colony nesting in the area is a magnet for bird watchers and photographers. Visitors can also look forward to strolling along the incredibly scenic coastline to spot wildlife, view the magnificent lava formations and discover old fishermen's huts.
