This town is located on the northernmost tip of the capital peninsula Seltjarnarnes.
The boundaries between the it and the capital are not visible any more.It has a few small industries. Just north of
the peninsula is a small island with a lighthouse and a breeding area of many bird
species. Walking along the coastline of this town on a fine day is delightful. The view in
all directions is excellent and the late summer sunset is the most
impressive in the world.
