Nice place to visit

The cliff in reality is much smaller and disappointing than it looks in the picture. It is nice to see while passing on the road but not worth making a detour.

We did drive quite a way in the dark to see the cliffs at night, and it was lovely to see. But it only took about 5 minutes to take a few photos before we left. Quite romantic.

The view of the cliffs are great all along the Keflavik coast, probably from flights as they're below the flight path.

So much beauty. Fabulous how the lights lighten up the old lava next to the sea. Keflavik is a small but cozy little town with everything you need.

We've seen the cliffs on a trail along the water of Keflavik. Nice to see but do not make a detour to see it.

Really charming to have the cliffs lit up during the winter months. The only thing needed now is some hot water you can soak while watching the lights.

The photo looks good, but the cliff is very small and disappointing. I heard there's firework in the 1st weekend of September, which could be better experience.

The "Bergid" Cliffs are a beautiful geological formation at the small boat marina in down town Keflavik. But in the long winter nights the cliffs are lit up with flood-lights that give them a golden color. Really beautiful to see.

One of the things that I am privileged to see every day after it´s turned on in the first weekend of September each year. Also has a nice hiking path on top of it along the coast line.

Enjoyed the romance looking at the lights at Bergid wich is located by the ocean in Keflavik city Center. We were also very lucky seeing some whales or dolphins jumping around only 200 - 300 meters away from the shore.
