Wow what a very beautiful public park and nature area, this location is great for seeing Iceland's natural beauty and it is very dark at night and a great place to get pictures of the northern lights when they come through, I do wish somebody would sell hot cocoa out of a gut truck when all the northern lights buses are out here in the middle of the night
Beautiful. Even the cafe is picturesque, and my favorite latte in Iceland.
