The romantic heart of Reykjavik
Noteworthy for: The Lighthouse at Grotta attracts visitors no matter the weather.
Lovers come here to light the flame. Surrounded by the ocean to the north, west and south, true romantics flock to Seltjarnarnes, one of the oldest municipalities in Iceland, to drink up nature’s silence and experience its profound beauty by walking the numerous paved pathways stretching for miles around this peninsula.
The Lighthouse at Grotta marks safe passage for the boats sailing towards Reykjavik’s harbour in the night. The lighthouse also beckons photographers and lovers alike because when the sun sets across the North Atlantic the subarctic reflection washes the entire peninsula in purple, pink and often times golden hues.
