Welcome to Garður
From Keflavík, if you follow Rte 41 for 9km, through the village of Garður, you’ll reach beautiful wind-battered Garðskagi headland, one of the best places in Iceland for birdwatchers. It’s a big breeding ground for seabirds, and it’s often the place where migratory species first touch down. It’s also possible to see seals (and maybe whales) from here, as well as superb views over the ocean to Snæfellsjökull. Two splendid lighthouses, one tall and one tiny, add drama, and you can get near-360-degree sea views from the tallest.
