Reykjavik Holidays & Hotels

Hotels in Reykjavik

Accommodation in Reykjavik spans from stylish hotels, generally ranging from 3 to 4 stars, to self-catered guest houses and apartments. For a more lavish stay, the hotels located in and around Miðborg offer a stylish retreat within the heart of the city.

Iceland’s capital city is a dream destination, featuring on many people’s bucket lists. Home to the otherworldly Northern Lights, Reykjavik is somewhere everyone should visit at least once in their lives. Tourists visit this captivating city to experience its perfect blend of outstanding natural landscapes and cosmopolitan energy. This icy metropolis attracts visitors from all over the world, yet is still one of the greenest, safest cities on the planet.

Where to stay

Miðborg

Also known as the heart of the city, Miðborg provides a vibrant and memorable holiday base. This hip, downtown part of Reykjavik boasts an array of museums, art galleries, cafes, restaurants and bars. Whether it’s a daytime meander through the busy streets of Laugavegur and Bankastræti, a cultural tour of the many sights or a late night tipple - Miðborg provides the perfect setting. Check into one of its sensational hotels, to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city right on your doorstep. Here, you can experience waking up to the stunning city skyline, whilst enjoying Iceland’s infamous natural beauty. For a calmer stay, check into one of the homely guest houses situated just a few streets down from the shopping haven of Laugavegur.

Laugardalur

This geothermal tourist hot spot, otherwise known as ‘hot spring valley’ is located to the north and the east of the city centre, engulfing the region of Miðborg. You can reach either end via the lively high street of Laugavegur. For visitors wanting to connect to nature slightly off the beaten path, this is the place to pitch up a tent and camp under the stars. Easy access to the city’s invigorating hot springs make this the perfect nordic paradise. There is also a cheerful, cheap youth hostel for people travelling on a budget.

There is a Family Park, a Zoo and some mesmerizing Botanical Gardens showing off native arctic flora and fauna. This spot is a favourite amongst families, with its hotels providing a serene haven with natural landscapes and easy access to the magical city centre.

Vesturbær

If proximity to the sea and its icy fresh waters is what you crave, then check out the tranquil residential area of Vesturbær. Though the region hosts less cultural sights and institutions, many of the luxurious hotels are located only a short stroll from its magnificent harbour. This is the most sought after area of Reykjavik for locals to purchase property. Visiting this stunningly simple, yet imaginative region provides an insight into the Icelandic community and their way of living.

What to see

Where to begin? Reykjavik is absolutely bursting with prestigious Nordic history and culture; and one of our most recommended micro adventures. It is believed that this city was the first permanent settlement made by the Norsemen in 874 AD. Miðborg has the highest concentration of cultural sites. So, if you are looking to stroll around, immersing yourself in art, history and culture on your holiday, this is a great starting point. The charisma and charm of Reykjavik’s central hub can take days if not weeks, to explore in full. It may be small but there is an abundance of intellectual activity and artistic expression, offering something interesting for everyone.

Iceland is most famous for its night sky phenomenon, known as the Aurora Borealis. The Northern Lights can be experienced on the clearest and crispest winter nights. The vibrant displays of multidimensional green and blues make this holiday experience one of the most sought after in the world.

Reykjavik's myriad of nature sites, cultural institutions and architecture is endless. Hallgrímskirkja Church and its impressive tower can be seen from all over the city. For an insight into Viking culture, be sure to visit Hofsstadir Historic Park, boasting impressive archeological remains from an early Viking settlement. To get the most out of the sights, buy a city card on arrival. This will get you from A to B on local buses (Strætó) and offers free entry to many of the major sights and museums, as well as all of the thermal pools and traditional saunas. This really is the easiest way to explore and take in the richness of Reykjavik, before a night out on the town.

Additionally, Keflavík – a 40 minute drive from Reykjavik – offers seriously exciting and unique hiking trails along the breathtaking coastline.

Nightlife

There is something unique and magical to be experienced on every night of your holiday. For a memorable time for the whole family to enjoy, head down to the Viking Village and feast in true Viking style whilst raising your horns to Thor and Freya. Also make sure you visit The Dubliner, the city’s longest standing Irish Bar, where you can sit back with a Guinness and take in its rustic interiors and Irish charm.

Why not join one of the organised bar crawls or pub tours which end at some of the hottest clubs in town? These tours are a great way to cover some ground with an experienced guide. You can find your favourite spots and return to them whenever you please to kick back with a much deserved beer.

What to eat

This urban metropolis is any food lover’s fantasy. From street food markets and food festivals to fine dining restaurants, Reykjavik has everything to offer and more. To indulge in some traditional Icelandic favourites, head down to the café located in front of Hallgrímskirkja Church. Here you can test the waters with an authentic fish stew or jump in at the deep end with Hákarl, a local delicacy of rotten fish.

Most Icelandic cuisine is seasonal, focusing on high quality local ingredients mainly sourced from the sea. This means an abundance of freshly caught, elegantly cooked fish and seafood. You can also try out the culinary delights of Reindeer, Sheep heads and Icelandic pancakes. For those wanting to sample flavours from all over the world, including more traditional English and European tastes, the Food Hall is worth a visit. Located in Hlemmur Square, the Hall boasts long wooden tables and access to an array of dishes from Vietnamese street food to sourdough pizzas.

Shopping

If you love to shop till you drop, then you are in the right place! Vogue Magazine named Laugavegur as ‘Iceland’s single, coolest street’ and they are not mistaken. Within just a few blocks, you can feast your eyes on so much chic, imaginative Icelandic design, you will want it all! Take a wander up and down this street, soaking in the colours, smells and innovative styles of its stunning shops and boutiques. We promise you that you will not return home empty handed, or lacking inspiration.

If you prefer an indoor shopping environment then pay a visit to Smáralind, Iceland’s largest shopping centre located 10-15 minutes’ drive from the city centre. Here you can find designer labels and more well-known brands. For people seeking independent stores and craft shops, Laugavegur is most definitely the spot for you. From handmade wool garments to Icelandic souvenirs, you won't struggle to find the perfect holiday gifts for your loved ones back home.
