Hafnarfjordur’s history and vision are great. The town is known for its pleasant atmosphere, flowery recreation of the sea, elves and the Vikings, good harbor facilities, great outdoor opportunities, the lava and the old town. The aim for foreign tourists to come to Hafnarfjordur in the next few years is an emphasis on proximity to Reykjavik under the capital area market name. Cooperation in the field of tourism and marketing in tourism is extremely important, both within the capital area of semutan. Opportunities are in proximity to Reykjavik, Reykjanes and the international airport, development of tourist attractions.
Everyone attends a diverse cultural life and an unusual experience. In Hafnarfjordur there are powerful cultural institutions and free access to museums. The importance of cultural events in tourism is indisputable and valuable in all festivals, large and small.
The Regional Museum needs to be strengthened and enabled to attend events, lectures and historical events, to name a few. Harbor City, Hafnarfjordur’s cultural and artistic center, is one of the country’s leading art collections with diverse activities, such as art exhibitions, concerts, seminars and lectures. Then there is great value in the town’s outdoor art work.
The Hafnarfjordur Library is the oldest cultural institution in the town. There is internet access and a good collection option. The Hafnarfjordur Library offers access to the latest information and computer technology, and is the largest public music museum in the country.
The Icelandic Film Museum is located in Hafnarfjordur and a powerful acting activity for the Hafn-ar fjord Theater Company (Amusement Theater) and The Gaflar Theater. Then there are a number of art galleries and design shops in town that offer tourism opportunities.
Opportunities are involved in historical and cultural walkways in the town and it is important to mark fun and educational routes. Numerous marking locations need to be marked separately. (Earsreit, monuments of the first Lutheran church, the guardian of the Hrafna-Flóka so few examples are mentioned) and hiking trails could be related to how the lava has shaped the settlement and how it was used in recharges, gardens, fisheries and more.
Then the first public utility in the country was in Hafnarfjordur. The vision is that in Hafnarfjordur there will be powerful events throughout the year and a diverse cultural offering in museums. It is necessary to give a better introduction to the portico history and interesting historical sites. Another key factor is that cultural institutions and tourism work together to promote the unique position of Hafnarfjordur to enhance tourism.
In recent years there have been enormous changes in the number of tourists in Iceland, but tourists have gone from 70 thousand to 2.2 million in 2017 in just 30 years. Forecasts still expect tourist growth in the coming years, but not as much as it has been. Hafnarfjordur has been spearheaded by increased tourist flow, but car traffic at Seltún in Hafnarfjordur has doubled in 5 years. The development policy needs to be defined, which areas should be built to accommodate the increase in tourists, and which areas to focus less on and even protect. The results of the analysis are that of nature, geology, scanty, cultural heritage and high-temperature areas, which is what tourists seek in Hafnarfjordur’s diversity area. In view of the results, it is proposed that further development be undertaken at Seltun, Grænavatn, Kleifarvatn, Krýsuvíkurberg and Hafnarfjordur district roads of nature and accessibility.
The considerable investment that has been made in the area of tourism in this area and the ongoing hotel construction has provided the opportunity to expand tourism. It is not surprising, then, that in the next few years we will see a large part of Iceland’s economy in the tourism industry.
