Lake Vifilstaðavatn

A Little Paradise In The Middle of Greater Reykjavík Area

You are in the greater Reykjavík area and suddenly you want to unwind and hike in nature for an hour without going far away. Where do you go?

May we recommend a hike around the lake Vífilstaðavatn. It is a small lake near Garðabær town. The area is a nature reserve. 

There is a nice hiking path around the lake without any hills. Ideal for a pleasure hike in beautiful landscape. There is however car traffic near, but it does not matter. The hike is almost 3 km and it takes about 30-40 minutes. Afterwards you feel totally relaxed with clear mind.
