Enjoyed a pleasant morning stroll up to and around the lighthouse, lovely views to either side. Got some nice photos here.

“Very windy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2014

We headed to the lighthouse to see the northern lights. It is a great place if they are active but they weren't our night. Very cold and windy as isolated at the sea edge.

“Grotta by name”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

A sight to see if in Reykjavik but wouldn't travel here specifically just for the light house. Can be a good place to see the Northern lights (unfortunately to cloudy for us)

“Iconic view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014

we went to Grotta lighthouse at the coldest night of our trip and it's extra windy out there but still totally worth it! The scenery with the beautiful northern lights were iconic and it photographs even more spectecular.

“Great Place from which to View the Aurora Borealis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Loved the views of the harbor and Aurora from here....VERY windy so take LOTS of extra layers! Nice dramatic views in the early morning when there are clouds and sun on the mountains...
