Nestled in Iceland’s Reykjanes Peninsula sits Grindavik, a town conveniently located near both the Blue Lagoon and the country’s main airport, Keflavik International. Known for its fishing industry and as a centre for processing the daily catch, Grindavik is a hub for commercial fishing and you’ll often see fishing boats coming and going from its port. Tourism has become an increasingly important industry in Grindavik due to its proximity to natural attractions in the area, like the Blue Lagoon. The town also possesses a rich cultural heritage, and visitors can learn about local history and traditions by visiting the Grindavik Museum,
filled with artefacts relating to the town’s fishing and maritime history. Grindavik makes a great base from which to explore the rest of the Reykjanes Peninsula, known for its rugged volcanic landscapes, geothermal areas and picturesque coastal villages. Popular hikes take visitors to the Krýsuvik geothermal area, the Reykjanesviti lighthouse, and the nearby villages of Vogar and Sandgerði.
