Where is it?
Álftanes is a town and former municipality in Iceland, located roughly twenty minutes drive from the capital, Reykjavik, on the northeastern point of the Reykjanes Peninsula.
Álftanes now makes up part of the Capital Region and has an estimated population of 2600 people. Despite being so close to the city, Álftanes feels like a natural oasis. Surrounded on all sides by the lapping waves of the Atlantic Ocean, the peninsula is characterised by rolling farmlands, distant hills and volcanic plateaus. From Álftanes, one can enjoy views over Reykjavik and the nearby Mount. Esja. It is also home to Bessastaðir, the official residence of the President of Iceland.
Amongst the many attractions in or nearby to Álftanes is the town’s swimming pool (which includes a wave pool and boasts the longest waterslide in Iceland), large colonies of bird-life and gorgeous hiking trails. There is also a large lava field, Gálgahraun, known to be the site of many executions during the Settlement period. Human bones have been found within this lava field, strengthening this theory further.,
