Great gem in the city that isn't touristed-out YET

Living in Icealnd, I could see the path out my window but I had never really followed it fully until I had moved away. So sad. I picked up jogging afterwards and upon a return... read more

Living in Icealnd, I could see the path out my window but I had never really followed it fully until I had moved away. So sad. I picked up jogging afterwards and upon a return trip to Iceland, I tried it and found the run to be one of the most beautiful experiences I had in the country along the... More

This path is great for jogging or walking along the scenic ocean bay in Reykjavik. It's perfect for exercise or just to get away from the downtown bustle. Great scenery for photography as well.

You can visit this area any time of the day...really any time of the year. There's this walking, cycling or running path that circles the city and to visit the penisola area follow this path that you find along the seaside. It's mostly continuous except a bit "unclear" in the harbour area of the city...but it passes "Harpa" Concert Hall... More

ok guys, it's just a joging path. there was a lot of debris carried out by the ocean when I was there, so it was a little hard to run. Oh, and be prepared for a LOT of wind

If you're looking for a fine running path linked to central Reykjavik, this will fit the bill. The path takes you along the bay, with fantastic views of the mountains in the distance and huge ships coming into harbor. It is flat and well-paved and ends at a lighthouse at peninsula's tip. I'm not sure of the distance; probably about... More

I did this on a sunny winters evening and it was beautiful. I had the best of the weather with a calm sea and clear views. It's away from the tourist traps and very tranquil

Walking westwards along the coastal path from downtown on a sunny winter's afternoon has to be one of the hidden pleasures of Reykjavik. The path snakes gently along the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula for about an hour or so through this gentle Reykjavik suburb until you get to the beach and finally the lighthouse at its tip. I am told this is... More

During a cold winter night, whether driving, jogging, biking or just walking, walk close to the lighthouse at the end of the peninsula. Do not go close to the water during flood, it´s cold and the current is strong. But it has one of the best northern lights seeing spots so close to the city center or just for stargazing.... More

Lovely coastal path with nice view, can be windy but thats just refreshing in my opinion. Lots of birds and you could get lucky and see seals close to the coast.
