Visit Iceland

Reykjavik – Landmannalaugar- Vestmannaeyjar- Reykjavik

This summer, my destination was Iceland. Together with some friends, I travelled around the southern part of the island. Everywhere I turned the nature was breathtaking. As a volcanic Island without trees, the sights were different from what I am used to, but that made it ever more stunning in my eyes. And as if that is not enough, I have rarely met nicer and more helpful people than during my 10 days there.

The trip started and ended with a couple of days in Reykjavik, a city I fell in love with. The city center is colorful with many small independent shops and good food. Under you find my favorite places to live, eat and shop:

Live here

Loft Hostel

DSC03239We stayed at Loft Hostel in the main street. The standard is high even though it is a hostel. Another big plus is the rooftop where you can sit and enjoy life cuddled up in a blanket.

Eat here

...The Laundromat

The Laundromat is the café/restaurant where we ate most of our meals. I
recommend going there for a brunch on Sundays, as it was mouthwatering. The restaurant is also worth a visit simply because of the interior, a mixture of shelves with colorful books and old maps on the walls.

Ísbúð Vesturbæjar

This place is situated a bit outside the city center, but it is known for its traditional Icelandic ice cream. It is open to around midnight, and when we arrived around 23, the shop was full of customers.

The Kolaportid flea market – Tryggvagata 19

Every week- end, people from different parts of the city gather in a hall to sell their goods. If you are interested in vintage clothes and traditional Icelandic food, it is the perfect place. If you are as lucky as I was, you can find some vintage treasures. Remember to bring cash, as they do not accept cards.
