lighthouse Hópsnes

Lighthouse Hópsnes (Hópsnesviti) in June 2008. It is located in the southeast of the city of Grindavík on a small peninsula. Grindavík is on the peninsula of Reykjanes and is to be reached from Reykjavík over the roads 41 and 43. If leaving Grindavík into easterly direction on the road 427, one has to bend the second street into direction of the peninsula, then one reaches to the lighthouse. The way is not quite well practicable, but it is still practicable without a four-wheel car.
