VISIT REYKJAVIK’S TOP TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
It's one of the smallest capitals in the world, but Reykjavik offers an impressive array of attractions, activities and other tourism services. A stroll through the downtown reveals a wide selection of cosy cafes, quirky shops, lively bars, restaurants with international cuisine and accommodations for all budgets -- including several new luxury hotels. It's no wonder Reykjavik is the base for most adventures in Iceland.
No matter the time of year, there's something for everyone in the compact, walkable city centre of Reykjavik. Go on a whale watching tour or a wintertime northern lights cruise from the Old Harbour. Take a stroll by the shoreline and stop to admire the Harpa concert hall and Sun Voyager statue. Get a bird's eye view of Reykjavik from the bell tower of Hallgrímskirkja. Follow a guided walking tour through the colourful old streets. Relax at a geothermally heated swimming pool. Learn about Iceland's art scene or early Viking settlers at a museum. The possibilities are endless!
Many of Iceland's most famous tourist attractions, including the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle route, are just a short drive or day tour from the city. With a long weekend in Reykjavik, it's possible to visit the top sights of West and South Iceland, such as waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, mossy lava fields, volcanic craters and more. A wide variety of guided day tours to the countryside are available year-round, even at Christmastime. There are also several car rental options in Reykjavik, making it an ideal starting point for road trips to any part of the country.
