Things to do here

From the geothermal wonder that is the Reykjanes peninsula to the forests and fertile farmlands of the east of the island or the Arctic delights of the northern region of Iceland with its mountains, long valleys and lava fields, it’s a landscape unlike any other in Europe. October to April is when the Northern Lights or Aurora Borealis are most prominent but Reykjavík is a great starting point for any visitor. It’s a buzzing capital city with a young population proud of its cultural heritage and welcoming to visitors from all over the world.


To Eat

  1. Matur og Drykkur
    ‘Let tradition surprise you’ is the key message from this restaurant located in an old salt fish factory in the Old Harbour in Reykjavík and offering an inventive and modern take on classic Icelandic cuisine.
  2. Dill
    A respect for the traditions of Icelandic food marks this restaurant out but also a desire to embrace the spirit of ‘New Nordic’ cuisine with an emphasis on the use of the freshest local seasonal produce.


To Stay
