The Town of Reykjanes is a young and vibrant rapidly growing town on Reykjanes peninsula. There has been a significant increase in number of citizens in Reykjanesbaer in the past years and they are now 14.100. Reykjanesbaer profits by its closeness to the capital and it is also located at Iceland's borders at the gate to the rest of the World. At the same time other boundaries have vanished and now Asbru, the former US naval base has been transformed into an innovative and progressive educational community.
The town boasts of diverse recreational options and just on the town's doorstep there is pristine nature. With the new Osabotnaroad the possibility of a roundtrip of Reykjanes Peninsula with all its recreation and spectacular scenery opens up before driving back to the capital on the four lane and lit Reykjanes highway (41).
