Reykjavik City Breaks

Shaped by the energy of the earth, bustling with the energy of a cosmopolitan capital, surrounded by the pure unpolluted energy of nature, Reykjavík is a city of striking contrasts. Small corrugated iron houses nestle next to futuristic glass buildings; state-of-the-art facilities lie minutes away from rugged volcanic terrain; and international influences mingle with Iceland's national traditions to create a unique culture where old embraces new. 

Whatever your interests, Reykjavík has something to offer. Whether you are seeking the bustling energy of a cosmopolitan city, the thundering thermal energy in the ground beneath your feet, or the quiet green energy of the landscape surrounding the city, Reykjavík promises a memorable visit.

Places to shop

Reykjavík is full of boutiques and shops which feature the unique work of Icelandic designers using a variety of styles and materials. Great for finding a really unusual, yet incredibly stylish, piece of clothing. You can find something for all ages, shapes and sizes.

Icelanders have a great deal of affection for their atmospheric "old city centre", which in addition to top-of-the-line stores, has a great number of excellent cafes, restaurants and bars. Starting at the top of Laugavegur (Reykjavik's main shopping street, which is one mile long) and making your way westward, you will find a number of exclusive boutiques and fashion stores. But, there's more than just clothes to Laugavegur. There's accessories, children's clothes, fine porcelain, leather goods, cosmetics, lingerie, books, CDs and plenty more.
