Nature lovers flock to Gardur, which means ‘wall’ or ‘garden,’ for its untouched nature, diverse birdlife, impressive whale and dolphin spotting, as well as the earth walls for which the town is named.

You can also enjoy the great outdoors at one of the country’s best golf courses, and at the Gardskagi campsite with nearby swimming pool and relaxing hot tubs.

Easily the biggest draw to this area is Gardskagi, a rocky point with two lighthouses and a quaint folk museum featuring boat engines, old radios, a homemade organ and other olden-day novelties, as well as a charming cafe. The larger lighthouse has a 360-degree lookout platform for taking in the picturesque scenery.
