Reykjavik, Iceland - A Quick Guide




Arport Transfer
*NOTE: It's is infrequent like every hour!


Tips

  • Might be better to book day trips when you are there. It's pretty easy with the hotel or the tourist info office, and slightly cheaper.  But the good thing is that if the weather is good, you can plan around that.  We ended up when it was storming and we had issues trying to cancel the other one because it was from a different tour group (though we booked thru the "SAME" booking agency)
  • Bring layers and layers of clothes. It can be extremely cold.

What to see or do?


Blue Lagoon

  • This is a stop on the way back or to from the airport
  • The only issue with on the way back to the airport is that you might want to put enough buffer for you to change and might have to queue up to get out and pay.  In addition, the bus might get full so have enough time for the next bus.

Hallgrimskirkja

Icelandic Cathedral, in the center of the city, and it looks amazing. Very different architecturally!

  • It is a lot prettier in the evening as the lights changed.

      • Feedback: 
        • It was nothing fantastic but for me, it was just that I just need to try something traditionally Icelandic and this was the best place to get it.
        • For winter, they have their special traditional platter (soured whale, ram's testicles, and many other weird stuff) served only in Winter. Check out the youtube video here.

    Not a bad place to go to... it's actually good food and not too expensive.
