We had rented a car to drive the along the Reykjanes Peninsula and this was one the coolest spots we stopped at! We drove to the google maps location and were a bit confused because we were kind of in the middle of no where...More
I arrived at this remote lighthouse in the light of the rising sun... The golden glow of Icelandic winter day bathed the dwelling and the land/sea around it. Felt so alone, yet so peaceful. Iceland offers this, a lot.
Came up on this place while we were out just exploring. Beautiful ocean views, an fun little hill to walk up, and very picturesque light house. Quite close to some BIG thermal vents and a place where you can stand on two tetonic plates just...More
My friend and I stayed at the Northern Lights Inn and rented bikes to adventure in Grindavik and find the lighthouse. It's also accessible on foot or by car. On the small road to the lighthouse, you'll find old shipwrecks that have been washed ashore...More
You can walk or drive around a loop path that takes you past many shipwrecks and the lighthouse. Since it was chilly, we chose to drive around, but stopped and got out every so often to read a sign and get a closer look. It’s...More
The highlight for me was the Shipwreck. The lighthouse is probably the nicest lighthouse I saw on my trip in Iceland but then it is just a lighthouse. It is very windy and the lighthouse and shipwreck are maybe a 5-7 minute walk away which...More
Visiting in Feb the weather was quite cold and snowy but we still braved the walk from grindavik around to the lighthouse and back it took us about 2 hours start to finish but we did stop at all the information boards around the trail...More
Quite a few of them dotted along this peninsula. Some look interesting some don’t. Unless you are a big time fan of lighthouses, not much more to say, apart from beautiful scenery should the weather permit.
On a long (cold and windy) walk from the town you come to this lighthouse. It was very atmospheric, because of the weather, when you see so many nearby shipwrecks. I enjoyed the walk but you can get there by car too.
This spot was recommended by our hotel. We get there at sunset and it was amazing. The road was poor, covered with snow and ice, but it was worth the effort. Wrap up in warm clothes, the wind can be really strong and cold. The...More

I think it depends on the time of the year and the weather conditions. We were there in September and it rained every day, however, the driving conditions felt fine. For us, renting a car was definitely the right decision... More
I think it depends on the time of the year and the weather conditions. We were there in September and it rained every day, however, the driving conditions felt fine. For us, renting a car was definitely the right decision. We did the Golden Circle, then drove up to Hotel Husafell and then back to Reykjavik. However, I think the most important thing is to adhere to the list of roads your car rental company says your particular car is allowed to drive on - if you are not supposed to be on an F-road, then it's best not to go on one even if you think it could save you time or be an "exciting" experience.
