About Vogar

The village Vogar started developing early in the 20th century, when better and larger harbours for the larger fishing vessels were needed. Around the turn of the 19th century the number of inhabitants in Vogar was greater than in the neighbouring villages, Keflavik and Grindavik together. There are a few interesting hiking trails in the village area and the nature around it is highly interesting. The country’s strongest man, Jon Danielsson, lived in the village. He is said to have carried a big and a heavy boulder into the village. Now it stands as his monument by the school.
