GARDUR
TRAVEL GUIDE
How to get there
 

The village Gardur is situated on the northernmost tip of the Reykjanes peninsula. At the turn of the 19th century it was the most populous community of the peninsula because of the rich fishing grounds off its coast and the natural harbour. When the harbour of the village Sandgerdi was constructed for larger vessels, most of the fishing outfits of Gardur were moved there. Two lighthouses are located on the coast near Gardur. The older one depicts information on the coastline and maps showing the spots, where ships ran aground in the past, can be found. This area is a paradise for birdwatchers. The very popular golf course at Leira is nearby. The distance from the capital is about 58 km.
