Town in Lava
Although the historical town of Hafnarfjordur has become a suburb of the capital Reykjavik, it maintains an authentic spirit all its own. Once merely a fishing town in southwest Iceland, nowadays its old town center now attracts tourists with its many wooden houses and winding streets. Visitors are drawn to the destination because of its mythological association with legends of Icelandic elves. Whether or not you believe in local lore, you can soak in the town's scenic setting in the midst of a lava field and its many cultural events, including an annual Viking festival. With the Inspirock online itinerary creator, Hafnarfjordur and other destinations across the globe can be made central to your personalized travel plans.
