Brimketill is one of Reykjanes region's most popular natural attractions. Shaped like a pool. It is formed by the endless surf breaking on the lava rock coast. Once it was regluarly occupied by a woman-troll named Oddný and was called Oddnýjarlaug. Please keep caution the rocks can be very rough.

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Towns & Villages

Visitors to Iceland who arrive via Keflavik International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula may be somewhat surprised by the landscape that greets their eyes as they touch down in Iceland for the very first time. A seemingly endless, green-grey moss-topped lava field blankets the peninsula for as far as the eye can see, and it is this strange and rather other-worldly sight that is your first glimpse of the land of fire and ice.
