Thufa - Review
This curious monument is basically a manmade hill 26 meters wide and rising 8 meters with stone steps that lead to a house at the top. Well, it looks like a house, but it’s actually a shed where fish are hung out to dry. The man in question, OlofNordal, built the monument on commission from the HB Grandicompany. It seems to be an utterly pointless monument, yet there is huge affection for it. It’s location on the harbour gives it a great view of the Mount Esja, Faxafloi bay, the Harpa hall and Reykjavik harbor. Apart from some photography there is not much else to do here.

Thufa, Reykjavik Reviews
nice long stroll on the other side of city center's bay. nice photo ops...
Climb the 'mountain', you will find the jail and you will have an amazing view of the port and the sea.
Great place to walk to from town to get a view of the city by the water. Cool grass mound to climb up (children will love). There's some authentic dried fish in a shed at the top. I dare you to grab a piece!
An extraordinary, quiet and good place for night walks. You can see an amazing panorama of the city.
It's a bit site off city centre but it's well worth a visit to enjoy this viewing
