When in Iceland...

I dare to recommend some serious adventure hunting. My top activities in Iceland are cycling, road and mountain biking and backcountry skiing. I love those two equally! If you are all for adventurous experiences we might have something in common.

Winter time

Hopefully you will get a shot at viewing the Northern lights although dependent on clear skies, cold and crisp weather.

Merry Christmas

My personal travel tips

Getting to know Reykjavik
I would start exploring the city center. If lost you can always look for the tower of Hallgrímskirkja church to find your way. Public transport in Reykjavik is far from perfect but bus.is has the schedule for local busses. Before leaving the center I would dip into Sundhöll Reykjavíkur swimming pool which is only about 5 minutes walk from the church.

What to eat?
In my opinion Iceland has some of the finest restaurants I've tried and standard is pretty high. For some budget options I would go for Mai Thai on Laugavegur by Hlemmur or across the street there is Hlemmur food court. Noodle station and Eldsmiðjan (pizza place) are also good options. For next level I would go for Snaps bistro, Sæta Svínið, Bastard Brew & Food or Public house gastropub. Fine dining is not really my thing, I prefer the right atmo but Grillmarkaðurinn is a classic for good vibes & fine food and wine.
