Places to visit near Northern Light Inn

My wife and i are staying at the northern light inn for 2 days and we would like some help with places to visit that are not too far away.

Any ideas?

If you are on foot, it´s the Blue Lagoon, next door, and the Eldborg exhibition in the neighboor power plant.

You can get all info you need here:

We do have a car but do not want to drive for hundreds of miles.

We will visit the blue lagoon but wanted some ideas say within a 50 mile radius.

thanks for the response.

50 miles = 80 km

The link that icelandicguide gave above covers most places within that radius with the notable exception of Reykjavík. See www.visitreykjavik.is

You could look at driving along the coast (road nos. 427 and 42) to Þorláksöfn (Thorlákshöfn) and Eyrarbakki / Stokkseyri /Selfoss (roads 34 and a little of 33), the road no. 1 back to Hveragerði and Reykjavík - this would be just about within your mileage.

But why not at Þingvellir also - roads 35 and 36 from Selfoss, and back to Reykjavík - it adds a little more mileage, but also a lot more scenery

By the way. road nos. 427 and 42 are largely unpaved - some visitors find them rough, but with just a little care they're fine for a regular car.

For a map see towards the back of hertz.is/files/…file14970.pdf
