Kjósin - where?

Kjósin - where?

Kjósin is an area with many places of interest and natural beauty.  It is one of the places where you can find elfs, play golf, take a guided kayak tour and more.  Kjósin is beyond Esja mountain.  We who live in Reykjavík say that Esja mountain is our mountain.

Beaches are accessible and Hvalfjarðareyri is a popular area.  Lake Meðalfellsvatn is great for fishing and Maríuhöfn, Búðasandur and Hvítanes are places of historical interest.  Steðji and the wooden areas of Fossá and Brynjudalur are excellent areas for picnic.  Kjós has also splendid hiking trails such as Leggjabrjótur, Kirkjustígur and Gíslagata, who all offer a great view
