Knarrarósviti lighthouse is the tallest building in the South, 26.2 m (86 feet), designed by the Icelandic State Architect Guðjón Samúelsson in a functionalism and art nouveau style and built in 1938–1939. It is a stylish building and the mountain view from there is quite magnificent on a bright day.
The shore is beautiful but the rocks are slippery due to the seaweed which covers them. The waves can be big and dangerous but it is mesmerizing to stare into them. There are small ponds close to the shore and the kids love to play around them. The seals, as always, are curious to look at you just as it is fun to watch them.
We visited Knarrarósviti lighthouse in one of our trips with a group of friends with whom I used to work as a park ranger. We like to meet up at least once a year and explore places we haven´t visited before.
How to get there:
Take road no 33 either through the small town Stokkseyri or from Selfoss.
