Reykjavik area

Tours and activities

Maybe you are stuck in Reykjavik because of bad weather, cancelled tours or maybe you never even heard of the incredible nature. The quirky little city is not just full of crooked bankers and politicians, the architecture is a blast from Denmark of the past. There are more Icelandic books than Icelanders! you can spend hours browsing the bookstores of this highly literate nation.

Iceland fact

80% of the population of Iceland live in the capital area.

There are some beauty spots in the Reykjavik area. If you can escape from the hot dogs and puffin gift stores, there are beauty spots to be found in the lowest and highest parts of Reykjavik.

What’s on in Reykjavik?

You can’t come to Iceland and complain about the weather, right? OK, so maybe you can. If you keep getting thrown out of the puffin shops for loitering and you haven’t spotted Björk in any of the record shops, you could use a little help!!

Things to do in Reykjavik

Please find plenty of great activities in Reykjavik – the Nation’s capital thanks to these great tour operators.


The Statue of Leif Eiriksson, Reykjavik
In fine weather there are many exciting activities to connect visitors with Icelandic culture.

The current culture in Reykjavik is to see how many puffins can be sold to tourists. Or how many tourist shops can be squeezed into a square kilometer.

The majority of book stores sell books for tourists – and puffins. The cafes turn into bars to cater for every tourist need.

In Reykjavik, you are a tourist in tourist land. The challenge is finding some actual Icelandic Culture… my suggestion – hang out near the fishing harbour (between the tourist shops).

It doesn’t matter how cold it gets, it is always warm and dry indoors. Icelandic buildings are notoriously warm. But you don’t have to go indoors to get warm. Visit one of Reykjavik’s many outdoor pools to get wet and warm.
