GUIDE TO Reykjavík


We have put together a quick-and-easy overview of the museums, galleries and other attractions of Reykjavík, together with advice about how to visit the attractions in the most cost-effective way. It can be found here.


Reykjavík now boasts some wonderful places to eat. That wasn't always the case, but now the quality of its food can be outstanding, especially when it comes to fish (as you would expect from a country surrounded by at least 175 miles of unbroken sea). We have compiled our top five venues for lunch and dinner, and we've added a couple of bonus picks too. Read our restaurant guide here.

Self-guided tour

We have designed an easy self-guided walking tour around Reykjavík. It's four miles long (five miles if you walk around the Tjörnin lake) and it visits all the main landmarks of the capital. The tour lasts from two hours to a whole day, depending how slow you take it. It's a circular tour and you can pick it up from any point along the route. Here are closest start points to each of our partner hotels. Click on the name of a start point to begin the tour.
