This is a great pathway along the ocean for jogging, meandering, picture taking, and generally just enjoying the views and getting away from the crowds downtown. It's also a wonderful place to go and see the Northern Lights.

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.

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...More
