Out and about

Reykjavik Business Travel Guide - - BUSINESS TRAVEL -

IN­EVITABLY, WHEN ‘out and about’, the pri­mary goto places are wher­ever your gaze fancies. The nat­u­ral aes­thet­ics of Reyk­javík ac­count for the vast ma­jor­ity of land­marks and must-sees around the city, and this is largely thanks to the wide­spread, am­ply spaced na­ture of the cap­i­tal in gen­eral.

Be­ing very small in size, it has the feel of a coastal town, placed upon a back­drop of idyl­lic views, yet se­cretly em­bed­ding the se­ri­ous and vi­tal eco­nomic cogs that keep Ice­land afloat.

Out­side of your sched­uled plans to this less ap­peal­ing busi­ness un­der­world though, you’ll hardly no­tice it’s there, and can in­stead fo­cus your at­ten­tions on the fan­tas­ti­cally per­son­able and suf­fi­ciently catered for eater­ies, re­tail out­lets, mu­se­ums, leisure fa­cil­i­ties and na­ture trails.

So friendly are these ser­vice providers that they don’t even ex­pect you to tip them as you ven­ture from bar to bar, or restau­rant to diner. And with more than 200 food & drink op­tions, reg­u­lar fes­ti­vals, and a thriv­ing art and mu­sic scene; you cer­tainly won’t find your­self short changed if you’re look­ing to blow off some steam dur­ing your evenings.

And speak­ing of blow­ing off steam, vol­ca­noes of­fer just one of the nu­mer­ous day­time ac­tiv­i­ties avail­able in the area, as you be­gin your ex­plo­ration around the one-of-akind is­land.

If you’re strug­gling to choose which land­mark to visit next, then tour op­er­a­tors such as Choice Tour Ice­land can be your guide; of­fer­ing deals to show you the South Coast ‘Black Beach’, Blue La­goon, glaciers, the Golden Cir­cle, Reyk­javík for­est, Land­man­nalau­gar moun­tains, the Snae­fellnes Penin­sula, and of course the North­ern Lights.
