Although Stöðvarfjörður is a small, peaceful village, travelers will find plenty of things to do. Petra’s Stone and Mineral Collection is one of the largest of its kind and attracts thousands of visitors annually. Stöðvarfjörður is a place with considerable activity in the field of arts and crafts. Snærós is one of the best-known art galleries in East Iceland, and the market which is operated by local craftspeople in the old fish-salting plant has earned a reputation for its selection of quality work. Just outside Stöðvarfjörður, as you travel north towards Fáskrúðsfjörður, you can stop and take a look at Saxa, one of the unique natural features of Iceland’s East Fjords.
The campsite is located at the east end of the village, in a beautiful spot sheltered by trees. You will find toilets, electricity and sewage disposal facilities, as well as grill facilities and playground equipment. Tourist information is available year-round at Brekkan shop and restaurant. Stöðvarfjörður is one of the seven villages that comprise the municipality of Fjarðabyggð.
