Reykjanes Lighthouse

View Photos

Visit Iceland´s oldest lighthouse

The first lighthouse in Iceland was built in Reykjanes in 1878. By 1905, numerous earthquakes and rough surf had damaged the area so much that there was the risk of the lighthouse falling into the sea. Therefore, a new lighthouse was built in 1907 on Bæjarfell hill and the old one was demolished.

The light signal height is 69 metres above sea level but the actual height of the lighthouse is 31 metres. The Reykjanes lighthouse also has a radio beacon with a correction signal.

It's a popular place to take photos, have a picnic, or take a stroll.
