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.
