Odd attraction!

Great for kids and the old girl snores and farts! A bit of a giggle and no charge. Tucked away in the corner of the fishing port behind a fish factory.

Looks like something from a children's story. Just a giant figure making sleeping noises and a few posters describing the story to kids. Good for kids.

I am not sure what is so interesting about this but this is some kind of an attraction by the small boat harbor. There is just a brief walk from the parking lot along with the small boat harbor. This thing burps, farts and snores - the smell inside is terrible, mix of pee and wet wood. Watch where your... More

This is really weird and I think it only appeals to Icelandic children as they know about the Giantess. Only visit if you are in the area but I wouldn't go out of my way to go and visit as there is nothing really to see and you will only be disappointed

So cute! A whimsical find, if your close by it's a must see. Take in the view from the harbor and visit the Duus Museam...the Giantsess is not a destination on its own

Lovely walk through this charming town, leading to a delightfully hidden surprise..the Giants Cave, situated in the little harbour. We had no idea what this was when we stumbled across it but what a brilliant idea & a lovely thing for kids and adults to enjoy. Totally safe, free of charge. Worth spending a few minutes there & incorporate into... More

This instillation was a stones throw from our Guesthouse and a super fun way to start our walk along keflavik's seaside peninsula.
