HAFNARFJORDUR
TRAVEL GUIDE

.

This town is also known as The Town in the Lava Field or The Town of the Elves. It received its municipal rights in 1908 and developed around one of the most important trading post for centuries. It is the fourth largest town of the country. It is beautifully situated in the lava landscapes and has a very nice, small park called Hellisgerdi in the old centre. The town has a very good, natural harbour, which is among the main attractions. Down by the harbour is the Viking restaurant Fjorukrain, which offers deep sea angling and whale watching tours as well as good food.  The Hotel Viking is a part of the same operation. Every summer the very popular Viking Festival is celebrated for almost a week. It attracts visitors from all over the world. Hafnarfjordur offers all necessary services to the visitors, its cultural life is highly interesting and there are fishing lakes nearby. The golf course on the hill Hvaleyrarholt is very popular. The distance from the capital is 12 km.
