Photograph the Malarrif Lighthouse in Snæfellsjökull National Park

Malarrif Lighthouse, Iceland

based on 1 reviews


Added by Elyse Clark

This is a scenic lighthouse in Snæfellsjökull National Park located just a short walk from the National Park's visitor center.

From the visitor's center parking lot, take the path towards the lighthouse.  This unique 24m (~80 ft) tall lighthouse was built in 1917, then rebuilt in 1946. 

The grounds surrounding the lighthouse consist of lava formations.  Depending on where you stand, you have views out to the Atlantic Ocean or back towards the Snæfellsjökull volcano. 

Also along the short path to the lighthouse is a small zip line worth checking out!
