Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Center

Reykjavik Shopping District
Spaksmannsspjarir, a boutique known for their trendy and multifunctional clothing, is buried deep in the Reykjavik shopping district and offers a sample of unique Icelandic fashions.

The Best Hot Dog in Town

American-styled hot dogs can be found at Baejarins Beztu Pylsur, which has provided Icelandic people with their fill of franks since 1937. With its long and popular history, it’s no wonder that this eatery has the reputation as the best dog in town!

Starry Skies
Lavas, a restaurant built into a lava cliff, features a one-of-a-kind view into the Iceland night sky from their rooftop deck. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the legendary northern lights!
