Álafoss

Save to list

Why locals love it?

This exciting area is the residence for local artists. The last few years the area has bloomed and is now one of the most cozy areas around. The coffeehouse is great and the Álafoss factory store is a treasure.

Why you should visit it

It's a lovely area on the outskirts of the Reykjavík Greater Area with coffeehouses, artist workshops and a lovely shop where you can buy some quality handmade wool products.

Special tip

The old swimming pool in the area has been transformed to a recording studio, owned partially by the Indie rock band Sigur Rós.

Anita: That's one of their specialties. Their hand-knitted wool sweaters are from 20.000-25.000 Isk.
