HAFNIR

TRAVEL GUIDE
How to get there
 

Hafnir is a fishing hamlet, which was united with two other communities, Keflavik and Njardvik, and the new community is called Reykjanesbaer.  In 1881 (June 26), a timber freighter, The Jamestown, ran aground near Hafnir without a soul on board. The ship’s anchor is preserved outside the former Aquarium. Many people, who were building dwellings at the time, bought the wood.
Just south of Hafnir is a highly interesting bird cliff, Hafnaberg, and a marked hiking trail along the coast from Hafnir. From Hafnarberg people sometimes spot small whales feeding off the coast.

The distance from the capital is 54 km.
