I nice short hike that takes about an hour one way. Its our beloved Mount Esja that is always visible from the city. It's a short drive from the city and an easy hike.

This mountain is excellent for a hike and easily accessed by bus or bicycle. Takes about 40 minutes to drive to its roots. The view from the top is astonishing and worth all the effort.

“A very big, non-touristy, and beautifully remote hiking area, surprisingly close to the city. Try to find Heidmork caves or just walk around the waterfall or river, or into the woods. ”

Церковь
“Hallgrímskirkja church is Reykjavík's main landmark and its tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city. It was designed by the late Guðjón Samúelsson in 1937, who was often inspired in his endeavours by the fascinating shapes and forms created when lava cools into basalt rock. Construction of the church began in 1945 and ended in 1986, with the tower completed long before the rest of the building. The crypt beneath the choir was consecrated in 1948, the steeple and wings completed in 1974 and the nave consecrated in 1986. The church features, most notably, a gargantuan pipe organ designed and constructed by the German organ builder Johannes Klais of Bonn. Standing tall at an impressive 15m and weighing a remarkable 25 tons, this mechanical action organ is driven by four manuals and a pedal, 102 ranks, 72 stops and 5275 pipes, all designed to reproduce powerful notes capable of filling the huge and holy space with a range of tones - from the dulcet to the dramatic. Its construction was completed in December 1992 and has since been utilised in a variety of recordings, including some by Christopher Herrick. Standing directly in front of the church, and predating it by 15 years, is a fine statue of Leifur Eiríksson (c. 970 – c. 1020) – the first European to discover America. Records suggest that Leifur landed on the shores of the new world in the year 1,000 A.D., that's 500 years before Christopher Columbus. The statue, which was designed by Alexander Stirling Calder was a gift from the United States in honour of the 1930 Alþingi Millennial Festival, commemorating the 1,000th anniversary of the establishment of Iceland's parliament at Þingvellir in 930 AD. ”

“On old lighthouse on the western most point of the Reykjavík peninsula. It's a great spot during the summer to see the sun go just below the horizon before rising again. In the winter it's a great spot for catching the Northern Lights.”
