Laugavegur, Reykjavik
(4.1/5 based on 1,400+ 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.

  • This is the main shopping road with main restaurants. It is pricey but all of Reykjavik is. A good afternoon out to see sights. 
  • This road constitutes the main area of down town Reykjavik, it is filled with shops, bars and restaurants. great to just stroll along. 
  • main shopping area, with lots of restaurants and bars to choose from. look out for the happy hour promotions in many of the bars and restaurants
