Cheap flights to Reykjavik
Set against a backdrop of snow-topped mountains, it’s easy to fall under the spell of this beautiful and bewitching city. Soak up the culture in its many museums and art galleries , while away the hours in a cosy café, or indulge yourself in one of its world class restaurants.
Those looking for fun can partake in a ‘rúntur’ pub crawl or dance the night away in a chic boutique club, while music lovers can check out the latest sounds on city’s cool and creative scene.
Take a guided tour of the Árbær Open Air Museum on the outskirts of Reykjavik with an experienced guide. Árbær is a collection of old houses that recreates the history of Reykjavik from centuries gone by. Over 20 dark wooden homes with grass roofs shed some light on what it was like to live in Iceland many years ago.
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.
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.
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.
