  • Beautiful Lake to take a stroll around and when it's winder you can enough walk on the ice. There are beautiful swans and ducks to feed a well. Absolutely gorgeous during sunset.
  • In the winter it's a nice place to go to walk on the ice. The houses around the lake are very nice and there are many different birds to be seen
  • Nice lake. Best for photos during the "golden hour" using the picturesque houses around it.
  • Beautiful are at sunset, at the beginning of March it was completely Frozen so on Sunday afternoon, people were ice skating
  • Beautiful pond. Bring bread so you get to feed the ducks.

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.
