Reykjavik Pond Gallery (Tjörnin)

Reykjavik Pond is a small freshwater lake that is located in the heart of Reykjavik. Because of the wide variety of birds that can be seen there, it is a well-liked destination not just among locals but also among tourists. In the winter, the pond is a popular location for ice skating, as well as walking, feeding the birds, and other outdoor activities.

The natural wetland area that is now known as Reykjavik Pond was first inhabited in the 18th century. At that time, its history may be traced back to that time period. Reykjavik first developed the area around the pond in the early 1900s, and it has since expanded to become a crucial part of the city’s overall physical appearance.

Taking a trip to Reykjavik Pond is one of the best ways to get a feel for the country’s stunning natural scenery because it is both a lovely and serene location. Be sure to go for a stroll around the pond and soak in the beautiful landscape if you ever find yourself in Reykjavik. 

Groundwater from Vatnsmýri Marsh, a huge wetland area located to the north of Reykjavk Pond, flows into the pond to provide its primary source of water.

The deepest point of the pond is 0.8 meters (2.4 feet) deep, while the average depth of the pond is 0.57 meters (1.9 feet).

At Reykjavik Pond, there have been sightings of over fifty different kinds of birds, including ducks, geese, swans, terns, and waders. The pond is a well-known location for people who enjoy viewing birds.

A lot of people go to Reykjavik Pond during the winter months to go ice skating, stroll with their dogs, and feed the birds.

The pond is not only a well-known spot for taking photographs, but it has also appeared in a number of movies and television episodes.

One of my favorite locations in all of Reykjavik is the Reykjavik Pond. When I was a kid, I used to take a lot of walks around the pond, and the route I took most of the time was either to or from my home. After some time had passed, I took my kids back to the pond, and while we were there, we fed the ducks a lot of bread. As the years went by, there was one house at the pond that became a determinant of fate in my life, although discussing it here would take up too much space. And here I am, at the pond once more, but this time merely to take in its splendor and let those happy moments flood back into my mind and heart. Please don’t hesitate to share the photographs, and I really hope you enjoy browsing through the gallery.
