Tips from locals
Unique view point in the city where you can often see the northern lights because there aren't any city lights there.
A lighthouse that gets closed off when the tide comes in. A short way east of the lighthouse, on dry land, there is a small hot pot on the beach for dipping your toes in and watching the mountains.
A black sand beach, in the city! Good sport to see the northern lights from too.
The lighthouse, the ocean, the black sand beach. And during cold winter nights when the sky is clear, the northern lights!

“The local swimming pool. Swimming pools are a big part of Icelandic culture. We love to go hang out and chat in the hot tubs and relax in the steam baths and sauna. Take your own swimsuits and bath towels and be prepared to shower before and after in a shared locker room. This one is my personal favorite due to the circular steam room and variety of temperatures in the hot tubs. After you can grab a burger at Hagavagninn, a coffee at Kaffihús vesturbæjar, get one of the best cinnamon buns in town at Brauð og co. or go to Ísbúð Vesturbæjar for an ice cream. Icelanders are also crazy for their ice cream and the swimming pool / ice cream combo is popular all year round!”
