Tour the Natural History Museum Náttúrugripasafnið): the only natural history Museum in Iceland worthy of the name: watch fish and other creatures from the sea swim, crawl or creep in their aquariums, a fine display of stuffed birds and one of the best collections of Icelandic minerals anywhere.
Drop by “Skansinn”, the place by the harbour where past and present meet, where the lava flow stopped in 1973. There you will find a Norse timber church, the only one of its kind in Iceland, a gift from the people of Norway, and Landlyst, the second oldest building in the islands, now housing a small, but interesting medical museum.
Climb Heimaklettur, the highest rock formation in the islands. Its highest peak is no more than 283 meters, not demanding too much of your valuable time. Neither does it demand arduous climbing as ladders have been placed in the most difficult areas. And the view from the top is magnificent, whichever direction you prefer.
Sail around the islands. A roundtrip taking about 90 minutes. Accompanying you is a guide who might perhaps be in the mood to play a trumpet or a saxophone inside one of the caves. You will see the birdlife in close up and, if lucky, whales playing their various games.
Play golf, nine or eighteen holes on a course chosen by the magazine Golf Digest as one of Europe´s 200 most enjoyable. Players have even been known to forget to hit the little white balls being too engrossed in the view and their surroundings.
Drive to the top of Stórhöfði, the windiest place in Iceland and possibly the whole of Europe, where four calm days are the limit in an average year and wind speed can pass 30 m/sec. Needless to say the view is fabulous.
Swim in our fine swimming pool where the salt water makes it even easier and more enjoyable. Afterwards you can relax in the sauna or if you prefer more exercise, visit the gym.
Inspect Landakirkja, the oldest building in the islands, a dignified house of God where the pulpit in the centre, right above the altar. On Sundays you are of course welcome to attend a service.
