As of end of May 2018 it's fenced off. If you're hoping to walk up the cool spiral design it's unavailable. I visited it back in 2014 and hoped to show my brother and wife this time. It's still pretty cool but on a colder...More

We had seen this mound from the hotel and asked about it, but nobody could really tell us what it was. We had to resort to the Internet where there seems to be more information on it than in town. It's actually a work of...More

We took a handful of wrong turns to get here but eventually found it. It's a neat site, fun to look around and see the city from a different view. It would be nice to have a little plaque describing the sites historic value.

Didn’t know what this was, but saw people standing on the top and thought it would be a great angle for some unique picture of Reykjavik. I don’t get “art”. Especially not the dried dead fish in the hut at the top. But it’s worth...More

We visited and climbed Thufa several times. My son had a lot of fun, which I could not understand. There were a few people on the top, but not a single one could explain the reason for climbing all the way up. Thufa could be...More

The walk out to Thufa from the city center is about 20 minutes and it is worth it. The view from the spot is outstanding right before dawn. A beutiful view out towards Reykjavik

Not worth going if you only have a short time in Reykjavic. We stayed for a week so took the long walk through an industrial area from the old harbour just out of interest. Dull and rainy day, may have been more enjoyable with better...More
