Hotels in Reykjavik
Reykjavik means The Smoking Bay and is Iceland's capital where 60% of the
Icelandic population lives. Reykjavik is also home to a rich cultural
life, numerous restaurants, funny little markets and a lively harbour
where the whaling ships are moored – side by side with the boats
that take tourists to watch live whales.
In Reykjavik, the greatest sights are out of doors, such as trips on
horseback through the spectacular landscapes of Iceland or a dip in one
of the large outdoor thermal pools. But if you prefer relaxation or
outdoor experiences, a walk among the volcanic hills is well worth
travelling for all on its own. Iceland boasts stunning landscapes that
cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
Restaurants and night life
Reykjavik offers many good restaurants, and local delicacies include
lamb, fresh fish and seafood. If you want gourmet fare at bargain
prices, visit Dill, which was ranked as the fourth best Nordic
restaurant in 2010. Not only is the food amazing – the prices are
also more than fair. At Restaurant Perlan, guests dine in a UFO shaped
room that slowly turns so they can enjoy the views across Reykjavik
New exciting designer shops pop up in Reykjavik every day, and the city
also has numerous great flea markets. If you are looking for Icelandic
designer clothes, visit the shop named ELM, or have a look at Sputnik if
you prefer exclusive vintage clothes. At the shop of Kraum, you can buy
jewellery, arts and crafts, clothes and furniture made by locals. Music
lovers should visit the 12Tónar shop whose owner knows everything
about contemporary Icelandic music. Here, you can even have a cup of
coffee while checking out the music.
