Viðey Island

Enjoy a short trip with the Elding ferry service to the lovely island of Videy, situated in Kollfjördur just off the coast of Reykjavík.

Apart from its ancient ruins and rich historical background, other attractions include works of art by Yoko Ono (the Imagine Peace Tower) and Richard Serra (the Milestones project) and the island has one of oldest stone houses in Iceland where you can find a nice cafe

With an extensive network of trails the island can be explored both on foot and by bike. No matter which path you take, you’ll be rewarded with spectacular views of the surrounding mainland, and to the west you’ll be able to see the impressive outline of the Snaefellsnes peninsula.
