Iceland Seltjarnarnes

Grótta Island Lighthouse

A historic beacon positioned on a small peninsula, guiding sailors since 1897, popular for bird watching and aurora borealis vistas.

Tips from the community

This mysterious lighthouse is accessible only in times of the low tide. If you have the chance to visit this little island, however, it is a prime spot to view the northern lights in the wintertime. Experience one of nature's true wonders with the lights dancing above you while resting beneath the scenic lighthouse.
