I went to Heidmork on a recommendation by someone from Reykjavik. The space has nice walking trails around the water and through some forested areas, very peaceful and not very crowded. Nice way to escape the feel of the city without driving very far.

Heidmork is a beautiful paradise outside of the capital of Iceland. It's really nice place to bring your family and get the taste of Icelandic nature. Especially the red hills called Raudholar (Rauðhólar) which you can see when you drive into Heidmork from Nordlingaholt (Norðlingaholt)....More

The north area has some geologic formations worth seeing - very colorful & raw. The downside of this area for hiking is that the path is churned up from horses and they have left smelly gifts all over the place. It is somewhat expected as...More

We could not get into the reserve through the main road as it was closed for vehicles for some reason. The park is however quite large and there are tons of unpaved roads around. If you have the time use some to drive around and...More
