This is a free activity in keflevik, only minutes from the airport. It's a cute tale of a troll helping children. Fun for small kids but not teenagers

This was a nice walk from the hotel and for site seeing. This is also nice to view hills and night due to the lighting. However open from 9 to 5pm.

This giant stuffed children's toy is located in a cave on the harbor of Keflavik. If you happen to be here, takes five minutes maximum to see it. But would not go out of your way to see it.
