The best things to do in Reykjavik

There are lots of amazing things to do in Reykjavik
and the surrounding area, including some spectacular geysers and volcanoes. The city is located in an amazing natural environment and some of the top Reykjavik activities are located just outside of the city among the wild mountains, islands, waterfalls, and geothermal areas of Iceland.

First on your list of stuff to do in Reykjavik should be Tjörnin, a beautiful lake in the center of the city where you can really see why the Icelandic capital is considered one of the greenest and least polluted cities on the planet.

Of course, not all the attractions in Reykjavik are based around nature. As the nation's capital, Reykavik has plenty of lovely historic buildings like the 18th century
Stjórnarráð (Government House) and the National Theatre. The cathedral with its imposing tower is another of the top things to see in
Reykjavik. Make sure to climb to the top to enjoy amazing views of the entire city.

Finally, many of the best Reykjavik attractions aren't actually on the street, but rather housed in the city's wonderful museums! Save time to visit the National Museum of Iceland, the Nordic House or the Open Air Museum to learn a little bit more about Icelandic and Norse history and culture.
