The bustling city of Reykjavik has plenty to keep you captivated on your holiday. Known as the nightlife capital of the north, the charming capital has a thriving music scene and more than enough bars and clubs to keep you dancing until dawn. By day, check out the vibrant arts scene or uncover Iceland’s strong literary heritage.

Southwestern Iceland

While this part of the island stretches just over 200km, a visit to Southwestern Iceland offers a glimpse into the country’s authentic way of life. The original parliament was founded here over a thousand years ago, as well as being home to a number of ancient churches.

The West Fjords

This part of the island is least visited but it is easily one of the most beautiful spots in Iceland. Icy waters and dramatic fjords make for stunning visuals, while majestic mountains tower ahead.

Things to Do in Iceland

Exploring Iceland…

Embrace its nightlife

Iceland certainly knows how to have a good time. In summer, the island’s 24-hour sunlight provides the perfect excuse for parties, and you’ll never find yourself too far away from a humming bar or lively nightclub. Reykjavik, in particular, has a vibrant music scene, with many clubs showcasing every genre imaginable. In the winter time, crowds shelter themselves from the cold in edgy cocktail bars and cosy hideaways.

Experience the iconic Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s top tourist attraction - and for good reason. A huge geothermal pool with a temperature of 37 degrees, tourists flock here from across the globe to take a dip in the mineral-soaked waters that claim to be very good for your skin. There’s also a swim-up bar, where you can treat yourself to a drink, and a luxurious spa with an extensive treatment menu.

Go shopping

Whether you choose to experience Iceland in summer or winter, you’ll still want to make the most of the shopping opportunities on the island. Reykjavik’s main streets are jam-packed with high street shops and designer stores selling everything you might need, and plenty you don’t, particularly if you’re looking to brave Iceland’s colder seasons. Keep space in your suitcase for handmade woolly hats, scarves and jumpers as well as the latest in ski fashion.

Sightseeing in Iceland

Of all the sights in Iceland, the northern lights are the most popular. This is a spectacle that can normally only be witnessed in the winter months, usually from September through to March. With a bit of luck, you’ll be treated to a spectacular light show across the sky – best remember to take your camera with you!

Additionally, a trip to Iceland’s glaciers makes for a memorable stop on the itinerary. Whether you choose to walk across them, climb up them or just gaze down at the glacier pools, nothing quite compares to these natural ice sculptures. The most popular are Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and Jökulfirðir Glacier Fjord, for which plenty of excellent day trips are available.

Food and drink in Iceland

Cuisine in Iceland

If you’re searching for the opportunity to eat like a Viking, you’ve come to the right place. Iceland is renowned for its hearty helpings, with plenty of local dishes served up in its many eateries.

Due to its coastal location, fish is particularly popular. Saltfiskur is a fish that has been salted, dried and baked and is a favourite on many Icelandic menus. Additionally, Harofiskur is dried-out fish that you traditionally eat with butter – perhaps not to everyone’s tastes. If you’d prefer something more familiar, you can try one of Iceland’s famous hotdogs. Although the meal doesn’t originate from the island, they normally prove particularly popular!

Those with a sweet tooth might like to try Skyr, a dessert that is both high in protein and low in fat. Although it is technically a cheese, it looks and tastes like yoghurt and can often be found in cafes as well as food stores, served up with fruit or mixed into smoothies.

Restaurants in Iceland

Nordic cuisine is increasing in popularity, and you’ll find a great many restaurants serving up traditional Icelandic dishes. Reykjavik has become a hub for world-renowned chefs, making it a top spot for gastronomy.

Visit Reykjavik's harbour and you’ll be greeted with stylish restaurants and bars as well as stunning surroundings. Eateries are chic and modern, serving up fresh seafood dishes, salads and even live music. Alternatively, head to one of the city’s cool cafes for a hearty brunch – there are an endless amount of places to catch your eye.
