Reykjavik Sightseeing


The Icelandic Phallological Museum is quite possibly the most bizarre attraction in Reykjavik, with a collection of 280 phalluses from 93 species of animals and humans, of all different shapes and sizes. The museum showcases specimens from humans to huge whales and reindeer, but also the phalluses of elves and trolls. However because Icelandic folklore portrays these as being invisible, these specimens cannot be seen. This is most certainly an unforgettable attraction in the Icelandic capital.

ON Power, Iceland's geothermal energy company, is hosting a Geothermal Energy Exhibition at the Hellisheiði Power Plant, just outside of Reykjavik. Visitors can see first-hand the turbines spinning, an interactive presentation of the geothermal production process, and one of Europe's largest collections of rocks and minerals taken from the Icelandic wilderness. Tickets are 1,450 ISK each.

Key Areas

The Icelandic Symphony Orchestra is undergoing something of a renaissance. Principal conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier is undertaking his inaugural year of concerts, with concerts including Rumon Gamba and Dag Wiren taking place. There are regular lunchtime concerts throughout the summer to engage more people in the art of music.

The Living Art Museum is set to re-open in Marshall House on the harbour side after its re-location. The museum, a non-profit, local owned, modern art collective, has been collective works of art from both Icelandic and foreign artists for the past 30 years. The re-launch is set to highlight the founders' life's work.

Day Trips

At this time of year the Northern Lights are at their brightest and skies the darkest, so taking a trip out of Reykjavik to Þingvellir National Park is well worth it. Þingvellir is a dark sky hotspot, so it offers the best chance to see the flashing greens, oranges and reds in the dark winter skies.
