We paid our entrance fee on the honor system and then took the elevator to the viewing deck. Despite the strong winds, the 360 degree views from above Reykjavik were well worth the cold temperatures. The interior of the sanctuary is wonderfully understated although the organ's pipes were under renovation so we didn't have the full effect. When you are finished, make sure to walk down the hill to Laugavegur and do some shopping.
