Reykjanesbaer

The Town of Reykjanes is a young and vibrant rapidly growing town on Reykjanes peninsula. There has been a significant increase in number of citizens in Reykjanesbær in the past years and they are now 14.100. Reykjanesbær profits by its closeness to the capital and it is also located at Iceland's borders at the gate to the rest of the world. At the same time other boundaries have vanished and now Ásbrú, the former US naval base has been transformed into an innovative and progressive educational community.

The town boasts of diverse recreational options and just on the town's doorstep there is pristine nature. With the new Ósabotnaroad the possibility of a roundtrip of Reykjanes peninsula with all its recreation and spectacular scenery opens up before driving back to the capital on the four lane and lit Reykjanes highway (41).

History and Culture
The Church in Innri-Njarðvík
By the initiative of Ásbjörn Ólafsson, a farmer in Innri-Njarðvík, a church was built on the location. The church was consegrated in 1886 and is made from carved rock which was brought from the shore nearby and the heath above the inhabitated area. Magnús Magnússon (1842-1887) organized the carving of the rocks. One of the three clocks in the churchtower is an ancient clock made in 1725. The Church in Innri-Njarðvík is preserved.
History and Culture
The Gianta in the cave

Gianta in the mountain moved to Reykjanesbær during the family and cultural festival the Night of Lights in 2008 and is now located in Black Cave at the marina in Gróf. There Gianta has been settling in her nice cave with its superb view over the bay of Keflavík and Faxaflói.

Gianta is originally the creation of author Herdís Egilsdóttir who has written 16 stories about the little girl Sigga and her friend Gianta in the mountain. The last one describes her migration to Reykjanesbær. Gianta is in full size and sits sleeping in a rocking chair in the kitchen.

Open every day from 10:00 -17:00. Free Admission

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.
