Reykjavik, Capital Region, Исландия

Located in Vesturbær the posh/trendy residential area of Reykjavik.
We are only 10-15 MINUTES WALK to downtown Reykjavik.
We are only 2-3 HOUSES AWAY from:
- The highly popular Vesturbæjarlaug geothermal swimming pool with 2 pools, sauna, steam room & 6 hot tubs (all for about 6 Euros)
- The nice and hip Melabudin gourmet grocery store
- The popular Kaffihus Vesturbaejar cafe
- The popular Braud & Co bakery
- A pharmacy, a Thai takeaway and Reykjavik´s most popular ice cream store
(see detailed map in photo #18).

Also:
- Walk DOWN Hofsvallagata (3-4min) you have the seashore, turn left you have a very popular paved hiking trail along the coast (if instead you turn right there is a Mexican restaurant 3-4min away).
- Walk UP Hofsvallagata (10-15min) you have downtown Reykjavik.
- Walk UP Hofsvallagata (5-7min) you have the Catholic church. If you turn right there is a very nice old town residential neighborhood with the old graveyard Holavallagardur and below it the Reykjavik Pond. If you turn left (by the Catholic church) and walk down Aegisgata, instead of ending downtown, you will end in the new Harbour area with lots of restaurants and cafe's, also if you continue bit further into the Harbour area you have the 2 main grocery stores Bonus and Kronan.

My personal recommendations for REYKJAVIK and ICELAND: Updated (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Ask me to send this by e-mail after you book since Airbnb messes with all the links. TiP: Tourist grocery stores like (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) will try to sell you bottled still water for a high price – there’s no need for that, our tap water is considered extremely pure and I have never seen an Icelander buy bottled still water in Iceland. TiP: Bonus and Kronan are the most popular grocery stores, Hagkaup is ok but a bit more expensive. -------------------- RESTAURANTS in Reykjavik: TiP: Most restaurants have lunch offer, often around 2.000 ISK, which can be half or one third of the dinner price. Many Icelanders make use of this. All located downtown Reykjavik, within 10min walking distance of one another. MY FAVORITES: Fiskmarkaðurinn: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (seafood, sushi, great interior) Snaps bar: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (trendy, inexpensive, popular among locals in the weekends) Kopar: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (consistent quality, one of the very best) Apótekið: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Kol: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Essensia: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (Mediterranean style, on Hverfisgata) Glo: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (the one downtown, on Laugavegur) (self service health food, raw, vegan, chicken, organic, used to be great, now ok) OTHER POPULAR, WELL REVIEWED: Matarkjallarinn: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Sumac: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Fiskfélagið: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Matur og Drykkur: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Verbud 11: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Sjávargrillið: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Grillmarkaðurinn: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Bragginn: (Website hidden by Airbnb) New as of summer (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) , I hear good things, burgers, by the beach Nautholsvik. Rok: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (small, cozy, good design, has grass roof, opposite the big church Hallgrimskirkja) Alftanes Kaffi (Website hidden by Airbnb) (family run, homie cafe pizza & soup restaurant, 15min drive from downtown) Also, in the area where you have Kopar and Verbud 11, by the harbor, there are many small restaurants like the Burger joint, Cafe Haiti, and Sægreifinn. For more on restaurants in Reykjavik see Tripadvisor: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Also, The White Guide ranks the best restaurants in Scandinavia, here is their list for Iceland for (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) Dill is at the top with a ranking of 79 out of a possible 100): (Website hidden by Airbnb) -------------------- BARS/CLUBS I like, in Reykjavik (updated (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) All located downtown Reykjavik, within 15min walking distance of one another. Kaldi Bar: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (trendy, popular, almost only locals, clientele mostly (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) but also younger) Port9 wine bar, Veghusastigur 9: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (a hidden gem, very close to everything but still hidden from the main street) Kaffibarinn: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (The best bar and nightlife/club in Reykjavik for the weekends.

And there are a few more bars/clubs frequented by (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) yo like: Petersen svitan Gamla Bio, Jacobsen Loftid, Olstofan, (and for all ages: Danske bar, English pub, Lebowski bar). TiP: Many bars have happy hour sometimes between 16 - 20 (can vary within this time frame). Happy hour prices for a large beer can be around 7-800 ISK, while normal large beer price may be (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) ISK. -------------------- CAFES I like, in Reykjavik Stofan Cafe: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Te og Kaffi Adalstraeti: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Te og Kaffi Skólavörðustíg: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (bookstore and cafe) Ida Zimsen: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Babalú Cafe: (Website hidden by Airbnb) There are plenty more cafés in Reykjavik. -------------------- MORE for Reykjavik Reykjavik downtown area is small. It consists of Laugavegur shopping strip, Skolavorðustigur shopping strip (leading up to the big church Hallgrimskirkja), Austurvollur main town square, the pond, the harbor and the surrounding areas. It's a cultural place with abundance of restaurants, bars, cozy little cafes and design shops, museums, exhibitions and nightlife. I strongly recommend the swimming pool complexes in Reykjavik. There are a total of 18 big swimming pool complexes with a combination of one or more big pools for lap swimming, several different heated hot tubs (outside), steam rooms and saunas. Entrance fee is normally about 6 Euros. I like them all but I mostly use Vesturbæjarlaug, Laugardalslaug and Arbæjarlaug. Here is a link to all the swimming pool complexes (Website hidden by Airbnb) And Laugardalslaug also has a large gym with more expensive spa (Website hidden by Airbnb) Here is a guide to Reykjavik with more than just the conventional stuff - 25 cool things to do in Reykjavik, written FEB (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) : (Website hidden by Airbnb) And another guide from November (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) the dog in the photo moving it’s head his name is Tinni he lives right opposite my parents house about 3 houses away from where the photo is taken at Kaffihus Vesturbaejar (my house is another 3 houses away) (Website hidden by Airbnb) And here is one from the Wall Street Journal, written in MAY (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) : (Website hidden by Airbnb) And here is a clever budget guide for Reykjavik/Iceland written by famous travel blogger Rick Steves in SUMMER (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) think I agree with most said in there): (Website hidden by Airbnb) -------------------- If you like to experience REYKJAVIK (and Iceland) LIKE A LOCAL (1) Look for local events (this goes for any city). In Iceland we use (Website hidden by Airbnb) (Website hidden by Airbnb) and (Website hidden by Airbnb) Look for an Opera or a simphony orchestra concert in Harpa concert hall, a theater play in the National Theatre or some art installation in one of the many galleries. In the winter we have events like THORRABLOT where locals get together and eat sheap heads and fermented shark, this happens in February otherwise very few Icelanders eat this type of food anymore. In September we have happenings like RÉTTIR or the annual sheep roundup where local farmers around Iceland meet up with friends and family to round-up the sheep from the summer grazing period in the mountains. These can be very fun local events with lots of singing and drinking, you can read more here (Website hidden by Airbnb) In the summer there will be some LOCAL FESTIVALS almost every weekend in some of the towns around Iceland offering lots of local people and low quality hot dogs and hamburgers. Here are a few of them (there are still more) you can (Hidden by Airbnb) the names to get the newest websites: FEB/MARCH - Reykjavik Food and fun, FEB/MARCH, (Website hidden by Airbnb) - Aldrei fór ég suður music festival, in MARCH, in Isafjordur West Fjords.

(3) Go swim in the sea, this is very popular also in the winter and you don’t wear any protective clothes, it’s called cold water swimming: (Website hidden by Airbnb) (4) Go to Kolaportid flea market in the weekends (Website hidden by Airbnb) (5) Go to a sweat lodge this is popular like this one (Website hidden by Airbnb) or go to Yoga for example in the harbor area close to our house (Website hidden by Airbnb) (6) Do a bike trip around Reykjavik, I used to do 1 – 1,5 hour trip something like this: (Website hidden by Airbnb) going through Aegissida, Ellidardalur, Oskjuhlid, Nautholsvik (the main (only) beach in Reykjavik) and more, and you bike past residential areas and different parts of the city. (7) It’s popular among locals in or near downtown to use Vesturbaer area where you have Vestubaejarlaug swimming pool, KaffiVest cafe, Braud & Co bakery, Melabudin grocery store and Isbud Vesturbaejar ice cream store. From there you can take walks by the seaside in Aegissida, or go the other direction to the harbour area. (8) Take a walk in the old town of Hafnarfjordur, or in Heidmork (Website hidden by Airbnb) and on the way visit homie Alftanes Cafe (Website hidden by Airbnb) (15min drive from downtown Reyjavik). (9) Hike up mountain Esja right in front of Reykjavik (Website hidden by Airbnb) (15min drive from downtown Reykjavik). (10) Stroll around Laugardalur, the botanical garden & cafe Flora for example, and go to the gym in Laugar, it’s the one I go to it’s very large and nice, frequented only by locals and it’s directly connected to Laugardalslaug swimming pool. (11) Finally, a few local facts: Icelanders never dress like mountaineers when they are in Reykjavik but most tourists do. Icelanders never ever buy bottled still water, or go whale watching, or go to the blue lagoon, or carry an umbrella :) Icelanders also usually meet up in each others houses before they go clubbing so they can get drunk less costly. And the young club goers usually only enter the clubs around 1am after midnight, although after the age of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) they will go earlier since then it’s more about meeting friends in restaurants and such. -------------------- Traveling in or around ICELAND in SUMMER time: First of all make sure to try out as many geothermal swimming pools as you can, use it as your shower that day. They are very popular. I am referring to two types of pools. The man made swimming pools inside towns and villages around Iceland. These often have geothermal water and they are similar to the ones in Reykjavik but often smaller. Then there are the natural hot springs and pools right in nature where you can go and bathe. Ask locals for directions to such pools as you drive around. The Blue Lagoon is about 40min drive from Reykjavik on the way to KEF airport. I would recommend going there. It is very touristic but also unique. Their website lists which times of the day are better than other to avoid traffic. As of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) the base entrance fee is 40 Euros, and in summer 50 Euros. (Website hidden by Airbnb) This guy here was not very happy with the Blue Lagoon experience (March (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) I think he has a point, as with everything else that is in high demand, quality tends to go down and cost up. But I would still go experience it once, for a couple of hours, and for the lowest price offered. And look at it as an experience. But if you want to spend quality time somewhere on food, accommodation, spa etc. I would do that somewhere else where it's not so incredibly touristic. Here is a link to 5 good natural hot springs to bathe in: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Here is a link to 11 interesting pools, either geothermal or located right by the sea: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Here is a link to about 10 non-commercial pools/hot springs (this is in Icelandic but you can (Hidden by Airbnb) the names and they also have GPS location next to each pool) (Website hidden by Airbnb) Here is a link to the Secret Pool at Fludir in South Iceland (1,5hrs from Reykjavik) (Website hidden by Airbnb) And they have special Aurora Borealis Floating tours (Website hidden by Airbnb) (just remember to check the Northern lights forecast yourself before going since more often than not there are no Northern lights) Here is a link to Hveragerdis pool (40min drive from Reykjavik, I go there often they have a lovely natural (smelly) sulfur steam bath and entrance is cheap) (Website hidden by Airbnb) And next to Hveragerdis pool is this guesthouse/geothermal pool area (Website hidden by Airbnb) And here is a link to Giljabod what seems like very natural hot tubs in Husafell in West Iceland (new as of October 2019) - (Website hidden by Airbnb) I don't know much about which TOUR COMPANIES are the best but Reykjavik Excursions (Website hidden by Airbnb) are one of the oldest and biggest, and then I stumbled upon "Back to Iceland travel" which seems to be a nice family run small tour company with great reviews on Tripadvisor (they also offer rides to the airport which seems to be more favorable than taking the Flybus if you are 4 or more traveling together (Website hidden by Airbnb) -------------------- DAY TOURS OUT OF REYKJAVIK I would say there are 4 main day tours out of Reykjavik: 1) Golden Circle. 2) Blue Lagoon and Reykjanes. 3) South Iceland and 4) Snaefellsnes. I would recommend all of them and you can read more about each in the section below "Iceland round trip". If you don't have time for them all I would say the first two are most touristic but also very unique - the Blue Lagoon on one hand, and the erupting Geysir + Gullfoss waterfall + Thingvellir where the two tectonic plates meet on the other hand. South Iceland has lots of good things, and if you don't mind sitting in a car or a bus for a 800 km return trip (480 miles) you can include Skaftafell and Jokulsarlon in this tour - very unique place but also a crazy car ride for one day so I would rather recommend an overnight if you have the time for that. Snaefellsnes is probably the least touristic of all these but still very picturesque, you can do a circle around the peninsula and either sleep in Stykkisholmur og make it a long day and drive back to Reykjavik late night. My friend Walter does specialty tours to most of these places in a Minivan. It might be worth it if you are 4 or more people together, here are some great Tripadvisor reviews of his tours (Website hidden by Airbnb) Here is a link to a Tripadvisor ranking of what seems to be mostl (Website hidden by Airbnb) day tours near Reykjavik, these are not the big companies and if you read the reviews of some of these top ones they seem to be amazing: (Website hidden by Airbnb) -------------------- ICELAND ROUND TRIP The following suggestions assume you have 2-3 WEEKS for a round trip around Iceland in summer time - but you can also pick and choose for smaller time periods: Also note: Some of the better known places mentioned below have become over populated by tourists like the Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss & Geysir, Seljalandsfoss and Black Sand Beach. It's always wise to also ask the locals about the less traveled up and coming spots that can also be very interesting. Start from REYKJAVIK, drive around REYKJANES First stop in the BLUE LAGOON. Then drive through Grindavík - Krýsuvík (nice geothermal fenced area with great colors in the ground). This music video by Sigurros captures well the beauty of Reykjaness it was all filmed there (Website hidden by Airbnb) Then continue to Hveragerdi (nice swimming pool there with natural sulfur smelling steam bath). Then drive on and right before Selfoss turn left and make a DETOUR (from the round-trip): That concludes REYKJANES. Start the GOLDEN CIRCLE THE DETOUR takes you to Thingvellir (must see, UNESCO National park and the first parliament in the world) –from there drive through Lyngdalsheiði to Laugavatn - then GEYSIR (one of the fountain geysers there Strokkur erupts every 10min or so) - then GULLFOSS which is a beautiful waterfall (must see both of these). Then from Gullfoss drive back down to the shore. You can either go straight to Selfoss and from there continue the round-trip, or you can make a stop in lovely Fludir town and dive into the Secret pool and the old pool. That concludes GOLDEN CIRCLE Start SOUTH ICELAND Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Thorsmork and Westman Islands - must see all of these, the first two are waterfalls, Thorsmork is one of my favorite places with beautiful landscape. You can stay in a cabin in Básar or Langidalur as an example (through Ferdafelagid or Utivist tour companies). But note there is problem getting all the way to Thorsmork unless you have a big wheel jeep, take a bus or get a lift. There are big rivers to cross. Thorsmork is a home to Eyjafjallajökull the famous volcanic eruption of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) which stopped all air traffic in large parts of Europe. Close by Thorsmork is Westman Island, quite a picturesque and interesting place in my opinion. In (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) they had a volcano erupt and the whole village had to evacuate in an instant but nobody got hurt. You take a ferry to get there. I really like a DETOUR here into the wilder area of the country. You might be able to do it on your car depending how you do it but it's best to have a 4 wheeler. Basically it means going Fjallabaksleid Nyrdri and sleep in Landmannalaugar which is a really nice wild area with natural geothermal pool to bathe in and a cabin house to sleep in. You can also go to Landmanalaugar through Fjallabak Sydri which is an even nicer route with colors in the ground from geothermal activities but for that route you need a very big wheel jeep. Landmannalaugar is really a unique place one of my favorite in Iceland. This incredible photo is taken in Brennisteinsalda which is a mountain very close to Landnmannalaugar and is clearly shows the colors and the landscape you can expect on a good day there: (Website hidden by Airbnb) The Thorsmork area is almost a part of this detour, but it can also be done separately. Here is a link to a 5 nights hiking tour of “Laugavegur” right in this area with Ferdafelagid one of two oldest tour associations for locals in Iceland: (Website hidden by Airbnb) And here is a link to a 2 nights hiking tour of “Fimmvorduhals” around a similar area with Utivist the other one of the two oldest tour associations for locals in Iceland: (Website hidden by Airbnb) These are the two most popular summer hiking routes in Iceland, by locals. As a side note: the other inland DETOUR you could do is book a trip from Myvatn in the north of Iceland and go to Herdubreid area and Viti (I haven't done this trip but many like it). But on with the ROUND-TRIP. Assuming you just finished the Landmannalaugar detour you will now end up somewhere on the shore again. Continue driving east. Places to stop on the way could be Kirkjubaejarklaustur (they should have good camping). Then Vik i Myrdal which has Reynisfjara (Black Sand Beach), Reynisdrangar and Dyrholaey. These are all quite nice and it does not take that long to see them. Then drive to Skaftafell. They have good camping. Must do a walk from the camping ground towards the glacier Skaftafellsjokull, you should be able to hear the glacier move once you are there, it's not a very long walk. Then close by Skaftarfell is Jokulsarlon one of Iceland's most famous places with big glaciers floating around. James Bond was filmed there once. For many Jokulsarlon is the highlight of their Iceland trip see more here: (Website hidden by Airbnb) Also, here is a link to a Justin Bieber video filmed in end of September (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) that has amazing footage of: Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss, Dyrholaey, Reynisfjara, Jokulsarlon and some other places in South Iceland. (Website hidden by Airbnb) That concludes SOUTH ICELAND. Start EAST FJORDS Then drive towards the East Fjords. Höfn í Hornafirði, Egilsstaðir, Hallormsstaðarskógur and Atlavík are all good places to see. Studlagil is an interesting canyon near Egilsstadir check out this photo (Website hidden by Airbnb) The wilderness center gets great reviews on Tripadvisor (Website hidden by Airbnb) And the Vok Baths which opened in summer (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) also seems interesting, near Egilsstadir (Website hidden by Airbnb) Also some of the villages in the fjords such as Seydisfjordur where Norræna ferry stops are very pretty and picturesque. You can bring your car from mainland Europe, rental cars are very expensive in Iceland. Many people love the East Fjords I have limited knowledge of them so I recommend you do some more searching for great places to see. That concludes EAST FJORDS. Start NORTH ICELAND From Seyðisfjörður drive counterclockwise, the first important things to see: Asbyrgi, Hljodaklettar and Dettifoss. Dettifoss is the most powerful waterfall in Europe. The beginning of the movie Prometheus was filmed there, and by Gullfoss waterfall. Must see all three of these (Ásbyrgi has good camping) Then drive to Husavik which is a nice town they just opened a new geothermal bathing complex in fall (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) From Husavik drive to Mývatn (should have good camping) - where you can go bath in (Website hidden by Airbnb) Also there are very nice colors in the ground near the geothermal activity close to Myvatn called Krafla area. Also go walk a bit in Dimmuborgir. This is where you can do the other inland detour to Herdubreid and Viti if you have a big enough car with good large tires. Then drive to Eyjafjörður - stay in Akureyri which is Iceland's 2nd largest town although it only has 18 thousand inhabitants. Visit Laufás old church place opposite Akureyri. There are lots of things to see in Akureyri and surroundings, check these photos (Website hidden by Airbnb) the Hot Tubs Hauganes by Dalvik, non-commercial tubs right by the seashore, you can also (Hidden by Airbnb) Baccala Bar hot tubs to find this. Then drive through Dalvík, Ólafsfjörður and Siglufjörður, I hear Siglufjordur has been working hard to attract visitors with nice things (as of (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) That concludes NORTH ICELAND. Start WEST FJORDS Then you have option to go to Vestfirðir which are best characterized by very big mountains, no trees and fewer people than in the rest of Iceland (some love it for being so remote and often free of both tourists and locals). You can for example drive from Blönduós to Isafjordur. It's a long drive. Once there you can sail to Vigur island, half hour. Then visit Sudureyri Flateyri, Thingeyri, and before you reach the towns of Bildudalur - Talknafjordur - Patreksfjordur (small fishery villages) there’s a beautiful waterfall called Dynjandi check out this photo (Website hidden by Airbnb) Also, close to Patreksfjordur you have Látrabjarg the westernmost part of Europe with big cliffs and white sandy beaches - then drive to Brjanslaekur. The other tour you can do in Vestfirdir is Hornstrandir, I hear this is a spectacular trip but requires some days, guides and good outdoor gear, check out these two photos from Hornstrandir (Website hidden by Airbnb) and (Website hidden by Airbnb) That concludes WEST FJORDS. Start SNAEFELLSNES Take the ferry from Brjanslaekur to Stykkishólmur it’s one of Iceland's prettiest little towns with old well kept houses. If you like you can hop off the ferry in Flatey it’s a tiny village in a tiny island with no cars on it, this is where they filmed the great summer comedy Brudguminn, which has some good footage from the island see trailer here (Website hidden by Airbnb) Once you are in Stykkisholmur you are officially in SNAEFELLSNES a very nice peninsula and one of my favorite places in Iceland, you can drive around it in a few hours. Drive to Grundafjordur, here you have Kirkjufell mountain which appeared in the Game of Thrones TV show. Then drive to Olafsvik and around the Snaefellsnes Glacier Snaefellsjokull. Soon you'll drive by Djupalonssandur very nice beach with rock formations. Then you have the tiny village Hellnar from where you can either walk or drive to Arnarstapi a very picturesque place with high cliffs towards the sea and beautiful view towards the Glacier. The walk is about 45 minutes, 2km, it's beautiful as you walk along the steep cliffs towards the sea. I would recommend the walk, maybe one person can take the car to Arnarstapi while the others walk (or you'll have to walk back for the car). Here is a family describing this walk (Website hidden by Airbnb) Arnarstapi also has good camping, check out these two photos from Arnarstapi (Website hidden by Airbnb) and (Website hidden by Airbnb) Finally, close by is Budir with a very pretty and tiny little church and an upscale hotel which I recommend as well, from there you can drive up to the glacier and get rides on a snow scooter on the glacier if you like. I went to a friends wedding in the tiny church in February (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) see here (Website hidden by Airbnb) That concludes SNAEFELLSNES. Drive back to REYKJAVIK Concluding the round trip around Iceland drive from Budir, through Borgarnes and end in Reykjavik again. You can either drive through the tunnel or take Hvalfjordur (1-2 hrs longer but nice) and then you end up in Reykjavik again. Other places to see on this leg are Husafell, Barnafossar and Surtshellir. Places where you could sleep on the round trip: Asbyrgi Myvatn Akureyri Stykkisholmur Arnarstapi Reykjavik Thingvellir Laugarvatn (on way back from they Geysir and Gullfoss) Thorsmork Landmannalaugar (or Westman Island) Vik i Myrdal Skaftafell Remember to do a (Hidden by Airbnb) Image search for the names of the places I mention above so you can see what they look like and make a decision what you want to prioritize.
