From Keflavík, if you follow Rte 41 for 9km, through the village of Gardur, you’ll reach beautiful wind-battered Garðskagi headland, one of the best places in Iceland for bird spotting – it’s a big breeding ground for sea birds, and it’s often the place where migratory species first touch down. It’s also possible to see seals, and maybe whales, from here. The Garður Peninsula Historical Museum, which is located at the peninsula, tells the story of the fishermen and the history of the people who lived and worked in the community.
Garður is also known for its lighthouses. The old Garðskagi Lighthouse was built in 1897 and was used until recently as a centre for studying the thousands of migrating birds which arrive there from Greenland and North America every year to breed on the surrounding shore.
Garður is the home of the popular indie band Of Monsters and Men.
