Stokkseyri Things to Do: 6 reviews and 30 photos
The sea shore at Stokkseyri is lovely and very popular. It is almost red in colour due to all the beach peat, shells and conch. The shore is popular both amongst locals and tourists and I have seen tourists camp in the ait there, wouldn't recommend putting up a tent so close to the N-Atlantic ocean though.
There is an information sign by the sea shore with information on the vegetation and bird-life as well as information on the lava by the shore, which stems from the largest known Holocene lava flow on earth some 8700 years ago. It must have been huge as it covers most of lowlands for 140 kilometers i.e. between Ílfusß and Ůjˇrsß (see my tip on Urriafoss waterfall).
Directions: Drive through Stokkseyri and right at the end of the town is this beautiful sea shore, look out for the sign (I added a picture).
