Reykjavik

Trip Planner Europe  /  Iceland  /  Capital Region  /  Reykjavik
(3.9/5 based on 46,000+ reviews for top 30 attractions)
Things to do: historic sites, museums, sightseeing
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy. The streets of its center not only boast a dramatically scenic backdrop, but are also lined with an eclectic and colorful array of buildings. Walking along just one street can reveal quirky wooden constructions, 20th-century Functionalist towers, and ultra-sleek modern designs. These buildings house fine restaurants, museums, galleries, cafes, and traditional Icelandic spas. Away from the metropolis, you can enjoy the natural delights of the nearby mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The city's nightlife and music scene is particularly lively, with much of the activity kicking off after midnight. Plan your trip to Reykjavik and other Iceland destinations using our handy Iceland itinerary builder.

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.
