Lunch at Ramen Momo
Ramen Momo, Tryggvagata, Reykjavík, Iceland
Warm up with the most delicious ramen at Ramen Momo! A small but special place (with vegetarian options!)
Bike tour of Reykjavik
reykjavik bike & segway tours
Fun way to tour the city and learn a little bit about the history and culture!
Grab a Hotdog
Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur, Reykjavík, Iceland
The most famous restaurant in Iceland…is a hotdog stand. No joke, people in Iceland are obsessed with hotdogs for some reason, but they are really good. This is the best/most famous one and there are a few of them around the city (and open late for drunk food!)
Elding, AEgisgardur, Reykjavík, Iceland
Wear your warmest clothes and spend the morning whale watching off the coast of Reykjavik! We booked all planned stuff through Reykjavik Excursions, they were great and super easy
Visit to Hallgrímskirkja
Hallgrimskirkja, Reykjavík, Iceland
Gló, Laugavegur, Reykjavík, Iceland
Before or after your visit to Hallgrímskirkja, stop by Glo for some delicious vegetarian food!
Grab beers at Laundromat Café
The Laundromat Cafe, Austurstræti, Reykjavík, Iceland
Laid back, hipster bar. Good for chilling with a beer before dinner. Yes, people can do laundry here too
Order a flight at Micro Bar
Micro Bar, Vesturgata, Reykjavík, Iceland
Beer flights and local craft beers. Very chill, no frills
Dinner at Tapas Barinn
Tapas barinn, Vesturgata, Reykjavík, Iceland
Tapas Barinn serves Icelandic tapas and is a great way to try a wide range of Icelandic dishes (we did it for our first dinner in Iceland).
Dinner at 3 Frakkar
3 Frakkar was my favorite meal of all, really great traditional Icelandic cuisine. We made reservations in advance, which I’d recommend since it's popular!
Before-dinner drinks at Snaps Bistro
Snaps Bistro, Þórsgata, Reykjavík, Iceland
We went here for a drink before dinner at 3 Frakkar, but I’ve heard it is an awesome spot for dinner too
Blue Lagoon Spa, Reykjavík, Iceland
Hands down my favorite thing on the trip and a MUST SEE. Bright blue hot springs in/surrounded by black volcanic rock. It’s really one of the coolest places I’ve ever been, the pools have bars you can swim up to and everything. You get a wristband when you arrive that locks/unlocks your locker and you use to pay for anything while you’re there
Golden Circle: Geysir
This is part of the "Golden Circle." You can book this on a tour bus or rent a car and drive it yourself. We rented a car and I definitely recommend doing it this way. You can go at your own pace (slower or faster) and makes the drive more fun and independent. The terrain, open fields, etc outside the city are gorgeous. It basically feels like you’re in the North in Game of Thrones (not sure if you watch and get that reference). If you pack a lunch and some snacks, there are a million cool views to stop and take it all in.
Golden Circle: Pingvellir
Another stop on the Golden Circle -- It's a national park, so make sure you're dressed warm and wearing hiking boots/sneakers
Gullfoss Falls, Iceland
You'll be at the top of a huge waterfall at this stop on the Golden Circle
