Reykjavik, Iceland - Top Things to Do and See in Reykjavik | Wanderlist Travel

Let's travel to: Reykjavik, Iceland

In a nutshell: nature, nature, nature

WHAT TO DO

  • Blue Lagoon – do not leave Iceland without taking a dip in this famous geothermal spa heated by hot lava. Also be sure to apply some of the algae facemask, found in multiple tubs around the spa.

  • Northern Lights – because they are quite difficult to spot, most tour companies will let you go multiple evenings at no extra cost.

  • Golden Circle – this area, covering ~300km, is made up of 3 sights to see:

    • Thingvellier National Park – a rift valley (that experiences 400 earthquakes/week) where the Viking Parliament set up shop in 930 AD. You can also see the spot where the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates meet.

    • Gullfoss waterfall – water flows at speeds of 103,000 litres/second

    • Geysir hot spring – see the original geyser, as well as the Strokkur geyser, which blows up every 2 minutes.

WHAT TO EAT

  • Lamb, dairy, and fish. Iceland is famous for its homey stews!

USEFUL TIPS

  • Most of the breathtaking views in Iceland are actually a fair drive’s away from Reykjavik. Renting a car will save you money you would’ve spent on tours, and it will also let you call the shots on how long you want to stay at each destination.

  • Take the Fly Bus from the airport. You can buy tickets on the airplane, and the bus stops at all the major hotels and hostels in Reykjavik.
