Lighthouse Grotta

Near Reykjavik (the capital of Iceland) there is the small Seltjarnarnes peninsula, surrounded by the ocean on almost all sides. Reykjavik’s satellite city of the same name, Seltjarnarnes, is also located here. This is one of the smallest Icelandic towns. As a city, it officially appeared on the map in 1947.

Off the coast of Seltjarnarnes there is the small island of Grotta. There used to be a village on the island. The people who lived here were engaged in farming, shipbuilding and fishing. But, later, landslides and floods led to the destruction of the Grotta. As a result of a big flood in January 1799, the village was abandoned... But in the second half of the 19th century, shipbuilders settled in Seltjarnarnes, and in 1897 a lighthouse was built on Grotta Island.

The lighthouse in Grotta, which still operates today, was rebuilt later in 1947. And in 1956 it was connected to the power grid. Since then, its appearance has remained more or less unchanged.

Now the vicinity of the lighthouse Grotta is a protected area where many species of rare birds live. Because of this, from May to July, the lighthouse is closed for visitors. At other times of the year, you can go up to the observation deck, which offers a breathtaking view of the city of Seltjarnarnes and its surroundings.
