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