South of Reykjavík, the country's third largest town was, not so long ago, still represented as a creek surrounded by modest houses with roofs barely jutting out above the lava field. The bay remains, the houses and their lava mounds in the gardens, too, now transformed into games for children; but the modernised seafront has revolutionised things. The small port with its lively atmosphere and the museums are worth the detour.
