Stykkishólmur is a small village of 1,100 on the western coast of Iceland. Starting as a trading post in 1550, it has spent most of its existence as a fishing village, the main catch being scallops. however, in the past thirty years, it has transformed itself into a tourist destination, and as an environmental leader.
Starting in the 1980s, many old buildings have been renovated and restored to their former glory, and now house various shops and businesses geared toward tourism. Tours for bird watching, sea life, and glaciers and volcanoes start here; or, you can go on your own, and go to Snæfellsjökull National Park, and use the many trails there. Stykkishólmur also features a swimming pool with its geothermally heated water, said to treat skin conditions.
And it has a golf course!
Stykkishólmur also claims the distinction of being the first European town to be certified an Earth Check community. The community, along with the neighboring villages, sort all their waste, pump their used heating water back into the ground, and have began the process of removing invasive vegetation.
