13 Turf Houses at Arnarstapi on Snæfellsnes Peninsula, Iceland

These twin turf houses are among the handful of buildings at Arnarstapi. During the 15th and 16th centuries, this village (sometimes called Strapi) was a thriving port for fishing and merchant ships. Today, the modest harbor is used for small pleasure crafts. The town’s focus is on tourists who come to marvel as its chiseled coastline.
