About Hafnarfjordur

Hafnarfjörður is a beautiful port town located on the south-west coast of Iceland. Approximately 17 kilometres south of capital Reykjavik, it is the third most populous city in Iceland. In addition to its fascinating heritage, the city hosts several annual festivals and is home to mystical elvish legends. It is also known as a popular area to view the awe-inspiring Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.

The city of Hafnarfjörður has much to offer visitors. Head to the harbour to see fishermen at work, stop for a coffee and observe this age-old tradition in full flow. The old city is a fascinating place to discover, as its colourful corrugated houses are typical of the Icelandic landscape. Nearby, the park of Hellisgerði is pretty as a picture, adorned with natural lava formations and mystical walks. Shopping is a fun pastime in Hafnarfjörður. The main shopping street, Strandgata, offers visitors the chance to browse charming independent art galleries, boutiques and cafes. Those keen to delve into the city’s culture can explore Hafnarfjörður Museum. It houses two exhibitions, one dedicated to the history of the city and the second, children’s antique toys. Adventurers interested in enveloping themselves in nature can enjoy horseback riding or a walk through the unspoilt Krýsuvík Geothermal Area, a 25-minute drive away. Thousands of birds reside among the rugged clifftops, and it’s possible to spot guillemots, razorbills and other species while admiring the wild Atlantic coastline. One activity no visitor should miss is a trip to see the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis.
