Visit Reykjavik, Iceland
A European vacation that is anything but ordinary

If you’re sick of repeating the same vacations year after year, take a break from the ordinary and escape to Iceland for a mega dose of adventure, scenic beauty and culture. Staying in Reykjavik gives visitors easy access to geothermal wonders, fine dining and extraordinary landscapes, for an Icelandic vacation you will never forget.


What to do


When you look at tourism photos of Iceland, there is one scene that is always featured: tourists relaxing in the shockingly blue geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon. The drive from Reykjavik is approximately 50 minutes, but it is well worth the trip for the outrageous photo opportunities and the chance to relax in a natural wonder. Many visitors feel that the natural minerals in the lava-heated seawater have unique healing properties, so save time to rest and soak awhile. You can find more information about the Blue Lagoon and other thermal pools close to Reykjavik at http://www.visitreykjavik.is.


You will gain an understanding of the history of Iceland as you enjoy the vibrant and imaginative displays at the National Museum of Iceland, including the permanent “Making a Nation” exhibit. This glimpse of history combined with the other artistic displays will give you insight to the local culture and enrich your entire vacation. You can find directions and other information at http://www.thjodminjasafn.is.


Where to stay


Just as when buying a home, selecting a hotel is all about the location, and Hotel Borg features one of the best in the city. The hotel, which was built in 1930, is located next to Reykjavik’s cathedral on the beautifully landscaped Austurvöllur square. The hotel is resplendent in Art Deco charm that features a minimalist Scandinavian twist. Shopping, fine dining, art galleries and more are all within walking distance. You can find more information about amenities and book your stay at http://en.hotelborg.is.


The 101 Hotel is another option in a wonderful location with many restaurants and nightlife options in walking distance. This sophisticated boutique hotel is one of the trendiest in the city, attracting glamorous and interesting guests, so make sure to stop into the bar to enjoy the atmosphere and an aperitif before heading out to dinner. To learn more about this romantic and happening hotel, please visit http://www.101hotel.is.


Where to eat


The fish market Fiskmarkadurinn is considered by many to be the best restaurant in the city. This iconic downtown spot is located in a historic wood-frame building that gives diners a glimpse of traditional Icelandic wood-frame architecture juxtaposed with trendy Asian decor. Regional Icelandic dishes are likewise paired in perfect harmony with Asian cuisine, for an unforgettable meal.


If you are willing to travel slightly outside of downtown to the family-owned 3 Frakkar Hja Ulfari, you will have the opportunity to experience some truly traditional cuisine. The menu is primarily seafood, and diners with adventurous taste will be greatly rewarded.


 “Popular with locals and unabashedly Icelandic, 3 Frakkar accommodates just 44 diners in its cozy, old-school dining room enlivened by mounted fish and stuffed rams' heads on the walls,” describes Travel + Leisure magazine.


Embark on a new adventure that will surely become a cherished memory for your family by starting to plan your Iceland vacation today.
