  • Would have been great to climb up through lighthouse but it was closed. The opening hours on Google is not updated as of this review. The actual opening hours are below: 1 May - 15 Sep; 10am - 6pm (daily) 16 Sep - 30 Apr; 11am - 5pm (Tue - Sat) The wind can be pretty strong. Do hold onto children and loose items.
  • We were staying in Reykjavik so the drive here in itself was fascinating. We arrived around sunset and couldn't have asked for a better time to take pictures. Definitely worth the drive!
  • Nice visit. You'll need to pay to access the top of the light house. There's a restroom at the visitor center.
  • Beautiful views of the surrounding peaks and Reykjavík in the distance. Awesome sound in the lighthouse itself
  • If you get lucky with the weather, a very beautiful spot for pictures and a great view of Reykjavik.
