Njardvik is one of the three united communities called Reykjanesbaer. In earlier
times it was divided into two communities. The two towns, Njardvik and Keflavik, had
already merged, and it was not possible to see the boundaries between them any more.
Fishing and fish processing have always been the main bases of livelihood in
Njardvik, but nowadays small industries and the
International Airport also play an
important role. The Folk Museum of Njardvik is highly
interesting and a replica of a 19th century fishermens dwelling shows an important
part of the history of the area. Basket ball is the most popular sport in the Reykjanes
area and Njardvik has one of the best teams of the country. Tourism plays an increasing
role in peoples everyday live. The distance from the capital is about 47 km.
