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 fishermen’s 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 people’s everyday live.
