Keflavik (translates to “Driftwood Bay’) is a city of Southwest Iceland that forms part of the Reykjanesbær municipality. The town was founded by Scottish businessmen in the 16th century for their fishing industry and fish processing facilities. It was further developed in the 1940s when the US forces built an airstrip for the Allied military base which later became the Keflavik International Airport. Having become one of the most important US military bases, their culture reflects a lot of American influences. Earning the moniker of Iceland’s “Rock and Roll capital” and “Liverpool of the North”, Keflavik even has the Museum of Rock ‘n’ Roll to showcase their musical history. Viking World is another museum that shows artifacts of their Nordic ancestry complete with a life-size Viking ship. Though most travelers just pass thru Keflavik on their way to the airport, this 5th most populated area has a lot more to show that’s worthy of a few days’ stay.
