Apartment by the pond is located in a lovely spot by The Pond in central Hafnarfjörður, a town short of thirty thousand inhabitants getting it´s name from the natural harbour formed by an ancient lava flow into the ocean. The pond is very much alive as wild swans, ducks and geese make it their habitat. The ducks making the most of it by nesting on the small islands in the twin ponds. Although the birds are wild they do appreciate little pieces of bread being fed to them which is a thing to do in Hafnarfjördur, especially in the company of children. In addition Spotted Atlantic Trout can be seen in the stream below the pond as they migrate up river.
