Activities in Reykjavik

The modern city of Reykjavik boasts a charming city centre where you can enjoy fantastic museums and plenty of night-life options. Stroll past the famous Hallgrímskirkja church or do a bit of shopping in the best street for it, Laugavegur. The city’s modest size makes it easy to get around here on foot. And if you need a break, you can stop by one of the many coffee bars. Reykjavik is located on the coast, so it’s no surprise that the city is home to many restaurants that serve delicious fresh seafood.
