Reykjavík Roasters

Coffee Shops

One of the best coffees in town according to the reviews.

Church of Hallgrímur (Hallgrímskirkja)


Hadlgrimskyrkia is probably one of the most famous attractions in Reykjavik and Iceland. It took more than forty years to build this majestic building! According to the architect's idea, the unusual shape of the building should symbolize a volcano and the lava that tends to rise.

National Museum of Iceland (Þjóðminjasafn Íslands)

History Museums

Someone wrote that this is one of the best museums ever visited. Exhibits are not big but very interesting and there are a lot of interactive boards.

Icelandic Fish & Chips

Fish & Chips Shops

This organic bistro serves incredibly tasty fish and chips with an Iceland twist.

Sun Voyager (Sólfar)

Outdoor Sculptures

A sunny navigator - a sculpture of John Gunnar Arnason, a fairytale boat, an ode to the sun. It was created to celebrate the discovery of new territories, dreams and hopes for progress and freedom of humanity.



Grótta is a tiny island connected to Reykjavík. While originally containing a farm, today it houses a lighthouse, bird haven, and recreation area. There are really few walks as romantic as this one.


Steakhouses, Scandinavian Restaurants, Seafood Restaurants

One of the best restaurants in town. It has a very rich menu of delicious dishes. Visitors advise trying the ready-made "fish experience".
