Top 3 Things to Do in Reykjavík

The Northern Lights

One of the biggest draws to Iceland is the Aurora Borealis, or Northern Lights, a striking natural phenomenon that causes the sky to light up with streaks of dancing colors. The best time to see the Northern Lights in Iceland is between September and April on a dark and cloudless night. You’ll want to escape from the light pollution of Reykjavik but tours can easily be arranged from the city.

The Golden Circle

A popular sightseeing route within easy reach of Reykjavík is Iceland’s Golden Circle, a tour of some of the best attractions in the southwest of the country. Famous sights such as the historical Þingvellir National Park, the awe-inspiring Geysir Geothermal Area and the mighty Gullfoss waterfall are all situated on this route - none are further than a two-hour drive from the capital.


There’s no better place to book a whale-watching tour than Reykjavík; boats leave daily from the old harbor, just minutes from the center. The main types of whales that are usually spotted in Faxaflói Bay are minke whales, white-beaked dolphins, humpback whales and harbor porpoises - sightings of these majestic creatures are most likely during the summer months.
