Reykjanes Things to Do: 59 reviews and 196 photos
There are beautiful rock formations by Valahnj˙kur and the shore there is rocky and black lava has flown all the way to the ocean, quite amazing.
Just outside the shore there is a pillar of rock called Karl - 51 m high.
Fourteen km off the shore there is Eldey island, home to one of the largest gannet colonies in the world - 16.000 pairs nest here. You will see it in the distance from the shore by Valahnj˙kur. It is 77 m high. The island is reserved and it is forbidden to visit it without a permit from the government ;)
In Eldey island the last great auks in the world were killed in 1844 :( Here is a webcam from Eldey island.
