Reykjavik Tourism: Best of Reykjavik

About Reykjavik
For most Icelandic visitors, Reykjavik is the gateway to wilderness adventures just beyond it, like Geysir Geothermal Area, Gullfoss Waterfall, and Þingvellir National Park. But the city itself deserves a few itinerary days to help you get a feel for Icelandic culture. Start by digging into Nordic food (order anything with fish or lamb), then dive into Reykjavik’s legendary music scene—it’s a hub for the indie and electronic musicians that fuel its nightlife. Afterward, recharge in one of the area’s many hot springs. You can’t go wrong with a soak in the Blue Lagoon, though locals often prefer the casual Sundhollin Public Baths.
