  • Gljufrasteinn was the house of writer Halldor Laxness (who won the Nobel Prize for literature in 1955) out in a beautiful spot in the countryside, not far from Reykjavik, very close to the road to Thi...  more »
  • One of my colleagues introduced me to Halldor Laxness, and I could not imagine being in Iceland and not visiting his home. Read his books, then visit. Do it.  more »

Where to stay in Reykjavik

In this highly walkable capital, many of Reykjavik's hotels and guesthouses offer close proximity to the city's popular attractions, bars, and restaurants. The waterfront offers an exciting dose of activity. Although Reykjavik provides plenty of accommodations to its flocks of visitors, there is a dearth of budget options in the city. Price-conscious visitors should consider staying in a hostel, with both private and dorm rooms available, or a nearby campsite. Although the campground is not as centrally located as some hotels, guests are better positioned to take advantage of the natural surroundings.
