Laugavegur, Reykjavik
(4.1/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
Shop at numerous local stores selling clothing, art, and jewelry from Icelandic designers at Laugavegur, one of the oldest shopping streets in the city. The street leads to hot springs where city women once took their laundry--hence the name "wash road." The street is also home to many cafes, bars, nightclubs, and restaurants. Keep an eye out for interesting street art, too. Note that this is one of Reykjavik's more expensive shopping areas. Our Reykjavik trip builder makes visiting Laugavegur and other Reykjavik attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
