A small wooded area with light trails leading to a secluded beach.

This forest near Perlan is full of surprises! Walk around and get lost, you´ll see this is no normal hiking path. Find WWII bunker ruins, fields of flowers, twisting and turning forest paths, big standing stones, broken walls and recently built wooden walkways. Every path leads to a new mystery, and sometimes more questions than answers! Definitely off the tourist track, and something you´ll never forget.

Fun for everyone in the family to walk and get lost in a tiny hiking area in the city.

easy walk in an Icelandic "forrest". Located around Perlan, where you can find a store, restaurant and a coffee house. You don´t have to pay to get into those places.

In the walking distance on the other side of our little creek, Fossvogur is Öskjuhlíðin. Only about 50 + years ago this was a bare rocky hill with only the remains of the British and US military base from the second WW. Then it was decided to plant trees and make it a park, and today it's the biggest park in the Reykjavík area but not the nicely decorative park type, but a forest type where you can easily get lost or lose your track just like elsewhere in nature. Ruins of the military base are scattered around the hill, small underground tunnels and lookouts and a wall here and a wall there that is no way you can know what was to begin white.
