Intresting places near Hafnarfjordur: Some 25 km from Hafnarfjördur (about 25 minute drive) is the famed Krýsuvík geothermal area with its amazing solfataras, boiling mud springs, blowing steam vent and astonishing palette of colour. Just a few minutes’ drive from there are the stunning Krýsuvíkurberg cliffs, where sea birds by the thousands nest and the rolling waves of the Atlantic crash against the rugged shore. Both are examples of amazing natural beauty.
The landscape at Krýsuvík was formed by volcanic activity and upheaval.
The Grænavatn, Gestsstaðavatn and Augun lakes are explosion craters created by volcanic eruptions at various times. Of those, Grænavatn lake is the largest, some 46 meters deep. Its water is green due to thermal algae and crystals which absorb the sun. Gestsstaðavatn lake draws its name from Gestsstaðir, a farm abandoned during the Middle Ages. On either side of the main road are small crater lakes, called Augun, or Eyes.
Hafnarfjordur: Looking for an enjoyable and unique place to visit? Look no further.
Take a break in Hafnarfjörður, the warm-hearted town in the lava,
just south of Iceland’s capital Reykjavík.
Hafnarfjörður’s name simply means ‘harbour fjord’ and refers to
the excellent natural harbour, which has Iceland’s longest history of
continuous port trade - since the 1300s.
Hafnarfjörður is Iceland’s third-largest town, with just over 26,000
residents. And yet that number is open to debate, since legend has it
that some of Iceland’s elves and hidden people live in Hafnarfjörður’s
lava cliffs and rocks, in peaceful coexistence with the town’s human
residents. In fact, it is possible to tour the elf lands, and those with
second sight may even be lucky enough to spot one or two!
Naturally the town also offers plenty of more conventional outdoor
activities, from golf and swimming to horse riding. Museums and
galleries turn the spotlight on history, music and visual arts.
