Valan is a tourist service center with a small kitchen, a seating area and an office. It draws inspiration from the surrounding natural features, most notably, the sizable rounded rocks that the ocean has cast upon the beach with great force next to the Valahnúkur cliff. From the building, guests can enjoy a panoramic view of the many spectacular natural sights that Reykjanes offers.
