  • They have a large selection of hand knit jumpers here, as well as quite a selection of wool if you go to the back section of the store. The prices here were the best I found inside the city, so if you...  more »
  • The selection is really great, there are the various patterns of all sizes. Prices are fair and rather cheaper than what we have seen for the same quality otherwise. Recommended.

  • Knitters' heaven. They sell Icelandic wool by the kilo. So much cheaper to make your own than buy some of the hats and gloves on sale in tourist shops. I may have gone overboard stocking up...
  • This is a great place to buy handknitted goods made in Iceland. The other stores have great products as well but they are made in other countries and are similarly priced. The selection at this shop is excellent and the staff is knowledgeable and helpful. They give you a receipt for a 14% tax refund redeemable at the airport. Icelandic wool goods are pretty expensive , and a hand knitted pullover sweater here will run you about 180+ dollars before the tax refund.
  • Got my traditional Icelandic sweater from here. It's perfect and amazing, well worth the money for it.
  • It's kind of a must do - get your Icelandic sweater here to guarantee its authenticity.
  • Some beautiful hand knitted clothing piled high. Reasonable prices.

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.
