HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°ur welcomes you!
Looking for an enjoyable and unique place to visit? Look no further. Take a break in HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°ur, the warm-hearted town in the lava, just south of Icelandâ€™s capital ReykjavÃk.
HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°urâ€™s name simply means â€˜harbour fjordâ€™ and refers to the excellent natural harbour, which has Icelandâ€™s longest history of continuous port trade - since the 1300s.
HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°ur is Icelandâ€™s third-largest town, with just over 26,000 residents. And yet that number is open to debate, since legend has it that some of Icelandâ€™s elves and hidden people live in HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°urâ€™s lava cliffs and rocks, in peaceful coexistence with the townâ€™s human residents. In fact, it is possible to tour the elf lands, and those with second sight may even be lucky enough to spot one or two! There is a Hidden Worlds tour that takes you to their home sites, and also there is An Elf-Garden in HellisgerÃ°i Park.
Naturally the town also offers plenty of more conventional outdoor activities, from golf and swimming to horse riding. Museums and galleries turn the spotlight on history, music and visual arts. And every summer hordes of Norsemen invade the town for the annual Viking Festival.
Some 25 km from HafnarfjÃ¶rdur (about 25 minute drive) is the famed KrÃ½suvÃk geothermal area with its amazing solfataras, boiling mud springs, blowing steam vent and astonishing palette of colour. Just a few minutesâ€™ drive from there are the stunning KrÃ½suvÃkurberg cliffs, where sea birds by the thousands nest and the rolling waves of the Atlantic crash against the rugged shore.

The town of HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°ur is situated amidst lava that flowed from BÃºrfell mountain about 7,300 years ago. On its way to the sea, the lava hardened into a multitude of picturesque formations. Townspeople have long nestled their homes among the rocks in order to enjoy this dramatic scenery. Today one wonders how it felt to live in such places in earlier times. Fortunately, one can still view many signs of former habitation, while the HafnarfjÃ¶rÃ°ur Museum also explains the history of this seaside town in a lava field.
