Reykjanes Things to Do: 59 reviews and 196 photos
There are beautiful rock formations by Valahnjúkur 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 Valahnjúkur. 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.
