Before dinner, our family of 5 (3 teenagers) decided to take a walk out to Grotta Lighthouse. We parked in the small lot where the road ends and headed down the path out towards the peninsula. The highlight wasn't the lighthouse itself, but the walk to and from in gale force winds surrounded by an angry ocean. We bundled up and laughed as we were blown around, trying to hold our balance or lean into the wind as it held us up. Totally worth the stop, and one of our favorite experiences in the city.

Lovely stroll along the coastline and really nice place to watch the ocean and have a walk. One of the most beautiful places near Reykjavik. The view of the mountains along the sea is absolutely stunning. Plenty of seabirds . Just take care about the high tide. Awesome place for observing the northern lights, near Reykjavik. In winter it is very cold here, the cold wind is blowing. Nice place to spend some time and just enjoy in sea, air ans energy. Every season. You should come here at least once to see it.

To actually walk to the lighthouse you would need to scale large rocks that are in the water when tide is out, so we weren't able to get that close. It is a pretty lighthouse, and we knew people who drove out there to see the Northern Lights one night. Worth the drive over.

We were staying in central city, we got the 13 bus to the last stop on the route and walked about half an hour to the lighthouse. You have to make sure you are walking there at low tide! If you are going there of an evening in hope to see the northern lights there then wrap up double warm! The temperature was -1 when we went but because of the wind it reached -9. It’s a shame that the two buildings there are not in use, even as a cafe or an open shelter to see the lights from etc, apart from a lighthouse (which is locked) there isn’t much to see!

The day we walked there it was freezing snow storm , cold and wet ! But for sure worth it ! It felt like I made it to the very end of Iceland ! Light house is pretty , to bad that it was closed and we couldn’t get inside but I understand that’s safety . This spot is perfect for pictures and just to sit and drink coffee .... just don’t forget to bring your own in a travel mug ! I fell in love with this place .
