Excellent mostly pedestrian street, can feel the pulse of this fantastic city. Many types of shops, restaurants, bakeries, coffee shops, restaurants, galleries and Icelandic products. We loved the street art!

Lots of great shops to visit on this street. If you only have time for one thing downtown, this would be it. Lots of coffee shops and restaurants along the way as well.

Great place to shop and eat as well as people watch, we enjoyed it. They close the street over the weekend so it's like a private promenade. It was fun.

We loved walking down this street. It’s perfect for little coffee shops, restaurants and souvenirs! Has it all. It’s lively and feels very safe even at night. Also has a supermarket that we used on way home to pick up a few bits.

Great place to walk, look, browse, shop. Some parts are closed to all but one-way auto traffic; great pedestrian sidewalks. Many types of stores, shops, galleries, restaurants.

The 'main drag' of Reykjavik, now a big tourist haunt that many locals now avoid. Still, for a visitor it is hard to avoid. Especially busy on weekend.
