Directions to 2 lighthouses in Garðskagi

 The lighthouses in Garðskagi were built in 1897 and 1944. The newer lighthouse is 28 metres high and is the highest lighthouse in Iceland. The Byggðasafn Garðskaga or city museum of Garður has information on the population and the marine life in the region.

It is located in the outbuildings of the lighthouse keeper’s cottage.The newer lighthouse is open during nice weather. To reach it, you have to walk past the museum.

  • Special places we would have missed otherwise ... We have just returned from a 16-day Iceland tour. The travel book was very helpful, we had downloaded and printed. The PDF travel guide helped us to find nice places. Very organized itinerary with a road map which listed all sites. TOP!
