SANDGERDI
TRAVEL GUIDE
How to get there
 

Sandgerdi is a fishing and fish processing village on the Reykjanes Peninsula. Quite a few fishing outfits and a large number of fishing vessels are operated there. One of the few fishermen’s restaurants, Vitinn (The Lighthouse), with its nice atmosphere is down by the harbour. A special Visitor’s Centre depicts the interaction between the nation and the country, the people and the environment and nature and history. The house called Sandgerdi, after which the village was named, is very conspicuous, when you arrive from the village Gardur. It was built from the wood from Jamestown, a freighter, which ran aground near the hamlet Hafnir in 1870. From Sandgerdi whale watching, deep sea angling and pleasure cruises to the rocky island Eldey are on offer. The distance from the capital is about 56 km.
