Grafarholt is the latest district in Reykjavík, planned and developed in the last decade of the twentieth century. It is a perfect neighborhood for those who value outdoor activity and seek peace and quite within the city limits. Within the district, there are some attractive outdoor recreational areas, among them one of the very best golf courses in Iceland; Grafarholtsvöllur. The district also has a salmon river, a small mountain, a lake, hiking tracks and many other options to enhance the quality of life for its residents and visitors.  From the houses on the eastern side, you can almost walk out the door and start a long walk on the Mosfellsheiði moors.

Grafarholt also has a commercial area

The district is built on a hill, which offers a magnificent view from most houses.  On top of the hill, there are apartment buildings and mostly single-family houses as you move down the slopes.
The west part is adjacent to the main road from Reykjavík center to the western and northern part of Iceland. This gave developers an excellent opportunity to develop a commercial area within the district.  Many companies have taken advantage of this opportunity and moved their operation to the Grafarholt district.  So, Grafarholt does not have the typical characteristics of a suburb, but a high-quality neighborhood. 

The district Grafaholt offers good quality service to its residents

The district has three kindergarten schools, two primary schools, sport and recreational center and a sports club. It is built from the ground on principles and values cherished by Icelanders for many centuries where education and wellbeing of its citizens are at the core.

Ice Super Truck adventure for a day

The day starts off with a visit to one of Iceland’s most famous and fascinating waterfalls, Seljalandsfoss. Here you can walk behind the falling water and experience something different.  But you need to be careful as the trail is narrow and most of the time a bit slippery.  Extra caution is required during winter, and proper footwear is recommended. This is one of the most photographed places in Iceland and for a good reason. During the winter, the waterfall is lit up so you can enjoy it’s magic all year round.
