Grindavik Overview

GrindavĂ­k is one of the most important fishing towns of Iceland. Tourism plays an increasing role and commerce and light industry thrive well. Grindavik boasts of the small park Solarve near the swimming pool. It was built in an ancient fashion and is dedicated to the old culture. Algerian buccaneers came robbing and plundering in 1627.
