Great place with some mind-blowing natural sights on its doorstep!

Reykjavik is a great place to base yourself in Iceland if you plan to do a combination of checking out the city's sights (most of which can be covered in a day) plus a few trips out. We went on the Golden Circle tour, the Blue Lagoon tour (an absolute MUST for any travellers to Iceland!!), plus a day trip by air to Kulusuk in Greenland. It was a great combination of things to see and do, as I think 5 days spent in Reykjavik alone could be rather boring. My best bits....check out the great views of Reykjavik from the top of either (or both!) Perlan or the Hallgrimskirka. The former is free, the latter a couple of pounds, which is not that expensive at all considering the general cost of many other things in Iceland! Also, spend a late afternoon/early evening bathing in the naturally heated waters of the Blue is the most magically experience and probably one which will entice you back to Reykjavik one day. All in all, a great place for a city break, but be sure to get out of the city, too, to experience what is visually one of the most spectacular countries in Europe!

Wonderfully located, cosmopolitan feel, friendly and interesting people. Very good value tax-free Shopping!

I had wanted to visit Iceland since I can remember, so this was my trip of a lifetime. We booked 6 nights in Reykjavik and planned to do various excursions to get a feel of the country. Reykjavik itself has more than you need even if you don't go on excursions. It's worth just looking at the streetmap which highlights the key buildings of interest etc. We spent a day doing our own 'city walk' and worked our way around the places that interested us. There were some wonderful buildings and architecture too. Having heard so much about the 'Blue Lagoon' we eventually decided against it because it sounded so touristy. Instead, we spent one of our mornings at Reykjavik's Laugardalslaug Geothermal Pool, which was only 20 minutes walk from our hotel. It cost the equivalent of £2.50 per adult entrance and contained an olympic size outdoor pool, and indoor pool, a thermal leisure pool, hot tubs etc etc. It was very relaxing and ideal for adults and children alike. The pools were part of a larger complex of sports halls, parks, football stadium etc. It was a great place for all ages and impressive to experience. I was pleasantly surprised at the opportunities for some bargain shopping here too, particularly outdoor gear. We stocked up on good quality outdoor coats, rucksacks etc which would have been very expensive in the UK, but probably cost about 30% less over here. On top of that, you can claim the tax back, which makes everything even cheaper. The shops give you a special receipt which you cash in at the airport in depatures. As expected, food and drink did cost more, but not as expensive as I thought. It's usually the drinks that bump things up. A glass of wine is usually about £5, or £20+ for a bottle (depending on what you buy), beer is about £4 for a pint. There are plenty of fast food places as well as quality restaurants. Our most expensive meal was on our last night when we went to a fish buffet restaurant (help yourself to as much as you want). It included starters and desserts (lots of it, plus cheese). We shared a bottle of wine and the bill came to around £75. Other nights we paid around £40 for the 2 of us, which would include a drink each (or a carafe of wine).

The best thing about my stay was ...

The atmosphere, the architecture, the people, the views. Everything!

One of the best capital cities I have been to. No big chain stores/eateries to be seen in the immediate vicinity which is refreshing! The city is very small and can be walked around in a few hours. Go on the tours! The Blue lagoon is a must - it really is very good and the Golden Circle tour using any of the tour operators is an absolute must. If you dont do this tour then you will not have seen Iceland. Reykjavik itself, because it is small doesnt have a lot to do but there are some smaller museums (fee applies) but generally the scenery is amazing and the people are the most friendly people ever and are fluent in English. There are so many spas dotted over the city withing walking distance. Visit them - they are cheap (<£3) and are open to the public til 10pm and are so relaxing! A great city with great people!!
