Odd attraction!

Great for kids and the old girl snores and farts! A bit of a giggle and no charge. Tucked away in the corner of the fishing port behind a fish factory.

This instillation was a stones throw from our Guesthouse and a super fun way to start our walk along keflavik's seaside peninsula.

Walked along the waterfront to see this - enjoyed a quick stop and then climbed the hill above it for a view.

It's a neat place to visit, especially if you have young children. It's a short walk along the malecon and past a small harbour. The giant is all boarded up and hard to see in its entirety. The cave itself is pretty cool. Kids will like it. However it's lacking on the wow factor compared to other things to see... More

There's not really a lot to do in this town, so driving here was kind of neat. I really wouldn't recommend the museum, nice building but a rip
