Reykjavik Travel Guide

The Icelandic capital of Reykjavik is the most northern capital city in the world and a great jump-off point for a wider Iceland itinerary.

Things to Do in Reykjavik

Admiring the striking modern architecture of Reykjavik while allowing time to get lost among the streets is a must when you touch down in Iceland. Browse the main boulevards of Laugavegur, Lækjargata and Bankastræti and marvel at the futuristic designs of buildings such as the ultra modern Hallgrímskirkja Cathedral, or the Harpa conference hall.

Don't miss the city's many heated swimming pools -- a great way to keep warm in the cold Icelandic temperatures

Best Places to Stay in Reykjavik

Consider staying in Miðborg -- the downtown district of Reykjavik that places you in the beating heart of the city's nightlife and restaurant scene. Nearby Laugardalur is more low-key and filled with ample quaint coffee shops and cafes.
