Friday, July 22 update: Hiking Helgafell

We headed out to Hafnarfjörður to do some hiking today. Our destination was Helgafell mountain. “With an accessible and easy trail, walking on Helgafell is popular for all levels of hikers, including young children.”

The parking area is located here (Google Maps link); it’s about a half hour drive from the harbor area of downtown Reykjavik; it could be much less if you are already outside of town. You’re in the right place if you see this sign at the end of the parking area:

Thursday, June 23 update: Hafnarfjörður

We’ve taken some time to relax the last few days in Hafnarfjörður, a town about 20 minutes outside of Reykjavik. We spent some time shopping in Kringlan, the largest mall in Reykjavik. It turns out that designation is a bit of a technicality, since Kringlan is 7 minutes away from the larger Smáralind, which is the largest mall in Iceland. Apparently, Smáralind is just outside of Reykjavik?
