There is a lovely place by the ocean in Hafnarfjörđur which I particularly like and I go there often, stop the car on the parking lot by the ocean and watch the sea-ravens. I have not seen so many of them anywhere else in Reykjavík or the connecting towns as on this particular spot.

The sea-ravens are so majestic, they belong to the pelican family and are black with a long beak. So if you love bird-watching or just like watching beautiful birds, like I do, then do visit this particual spot in Hafnarfjörđur.

The Icelandic word for a sea-raven is skarfur.

Address: By the intersection of Flķkagata and Vesturgata
Directions: If you are coming from Reykjavík, then turn right on Vesturgata by Hafnarfjörđur District museum, drive along the road, pass the elf-rock (see my previous tip) and the parking lot is on your left hand side.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
