Arnastapi at a Glance

Arnastapi is a beautiful little fishing village on the southern side of the Snæfellsnes peninsula. It is a very peaceful place right on the ocean and surrounded by fascinating sea cliffs. Here you can sit down, relax and watch the many birds nesting in the cliffs along the coastline.

Take a walk along the coastline to get an up close view of the birds, the magnificent lava formations and maybe even seals. Along the way, you'll also come across three blowholes, which are connected with the ocean. When the wind is blowing and the waves are high, you they shoot a column of water into the air.

Arnastapi is close to Mt. Snæfellsjökull, which is famous among certain New Age groups. Every year in the summer, people from all over the world gather in this area because they believe that Mt. Snæfellsjökull is a great power center radiating a positive energy. They come here to recharge their bodies with energy and often times also bring rock crystals with them.
