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.

A beautiful apartment - close to Reykjavik

  • 5 of 5

Johanna's apartment is perfect for a family visit to Reykjavik - beautifully presented with everything you could ask for. It is located about 15 min from the city so a car is essential. Johanna was very responsive to our queries and made the process very easy.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house with lots of thoughtful touches (snacks, coffee, etc.) in a convenient location maybe 15 minutes out of Reykjavik. Easy parking, comfortable beds and bathroom, lots of space for a family to stretch out. Would definitely stay here again!

Excellent Property with Fabulous View

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in this 2 bedroom flat during our trip to Iceland for the holidays. The view of the harbor was stunning regardless the weather and the flat had all the conveniences needed. It was spacious, modern, and very clean. To be honest, I don't think the pictures do it justice. The apartment is located just outside of Reykjavik and was an easy drive into the city for site seeing and shopping. While all of our accommodation in Iceland was very nice (Hilton Canopy hotel in downtown Reykjavik for New Years, and Black Beach Suites in Vik for 3 days), I think this was my favorite of the three. In fact, my partner asked if we could stay there longer and cancel another reservation...we liked it that much, and we wanted to spend more time in Harnarfjordur, the little harbor town where the apartment is located. Our only regret is that we were there in winter and it was too cold to use the roof top deck. Stunning views from up there.

The apartment is spacious, with modern decor and furnishings. It is nicely apppointed with everything one needs for a day, a week or longer in Iceland. The location is convenient to Reykjavik, Keflavik International Airport, and must-see areas for tourists. We appreciated the snacks and the coffee.

Golf: In 1993 the Oddur Golf Club (GO) – an open golf club – was established and became forthwith a member of the Golf Association of Iceland (GSÍ). Its foundation was of two reasons, firstly to enable the members of GOF to participate on golf tournaments on national basis, and secondly to give all people interested in playing golf an access to this unique golf course.

Both clubs, GOF and GO, have enjoyed a gradual increase in membership in the past and currently the combined memberships of both clubs rank among the highest in the country.

The attendance at the Odd Fellow Golf Course (Urriðavöllur) is by good weather, particularly on week-ends, often quite brisk. Therefore, it is advisable for players to book their round of golf in the early morning hours or the day before.

Ski: The ski areas of Bláfjöll and Skálafell are both only 25 minutes away from the city. Bláfjöll is south west of the city and Skálafell east of the city. Both areas have great ski slopes for downhill skiing and snowboarding as well as tracks for cross-country skiing. Bláfjöll has 15 lifts. Skálafell has 4 lifts.
