Hafnarfjörður and the Capital Area
Hafnarfjörður is only 15 minute drive from Reykjavik. A frequent, convenient, reliable and inexpensive bus service is available. Look for bus route number S-1.
The Capital Area consists of seven municipalities with approximately 200,000 inhabitants, comprising two-thirds of the Icelandic population.
The border between the countryside and the Capital Area is unusually clear when compared to other European cities. The inhabitants of these seven municipalities frequently live in one municipality and seek work or other activities in another. So, we refer to the Capital Area as one area where residents and visitors, domestic and foreign alike, interact without regards to political borders.
