Arnarstapi and Hellnar of Snæfellsnes are two tiny villages located at the end of the Snaefellsnes peninsula. The interest of the places lies mainly in exploring the coast, very beautiful at this place. Indeed, the two villages are permanently preserved to welcome tourism, even if the small port of Arnarstapi is still active.
The extraordinary columnar basalt and cliff formations here are breathtaking in beauty, and one of Iceland's most beautiful natural harbors is at Arnarstapi. The hike between Arnarstapi and Hellnar is worth a visit. Apart from the beautiful coast, there are also strange pillars of moss-grown basalt. Londrangar (two peculiar rocks) are kind to visit, but the surrounding area was not too exciting lava field. (route 25) I skipped Dritvik/Djupalonssandur (20/21/22/23/24) when I was there, but it is for me a reason to return to Snaefellsnes one day. There are strange basalt rock formations. The right place for a longer hike, I think. Also, an easy walk is a mountain track (F570) that starts east of the mountain Stapafell and gives a great view on the south coast of Snaefellsnes, weather permitting, of course.
