Saw this while having dinner at Duus Cafe restaurant. Took a walk the next day along the water and around the small harbor (fishing boats and whale watch boats) and found the Giantess' lair. It is quirky, cute and harmless but I do not think...More

A small cave by the sea where you can see a giant troll in it's room. It's free and if you are there you might as well go and see it with your children.

Not really a special visit needed but if you are walking the cliff walk it is worth popping into since it is a bit of literary history.

It was closed when we went there but you could still enter the cave. We guessed it would have some children activities when open. Still cute.

It’s in the bay of Keflavik harbour. Interesting cave, nice to pop in. It has sound animation too. A big troll, a huge bed, a post box and a tree with lots of baby’s dummy. Should have more stories, illustrations, explainations displayed.

This is a giant ugly statue lurking behind a partition in a semi-artificial cave. If you are a fan of the books, or less than about eight years old, I suppose it might be exciting.

If you’re in Keflavík and need to kill some time then definitely pop down to meet the giantess. It’s only a 10 - 15 min type stop but we really liked it and you can get some great photos around there. Not much else there...More

We were staying in a guesthouse nearby so we went as part of a nice walk along the harbour. Lots of locals were taking their children to explore. Interesting piece of artwork created with the natural elements of the island. Loved the tree of dummies.
