It's a tourist strip like so many others in similar cities and towns. There are a lot of kitchy tourist shops selling stuffed puffins and Icelandic sweaters. But there are also some nice restaurants and coffee shops. It's worth a walk, and if you're staying...More

This street is not easy to miss if you're wandering around downtown Reykjavik - nor should you miss it. Laugavegur hosts many a coffee shop, pub, and tourist shop and offers a lot to look at.

If you’re into impulse shopping, Laugavegur is the street for you. Every city has one, loaded with women’s stores and trinket shops, here with an Icelandic twist. I gave it about thirty minutes and realized I had already seen it even though this was my...More

Great street to find food from all over the world. Walk down to the harbour end for great fish and chips. Delicious noodles and soup in a big crusty bread bowl. Great choice.

On our first night in Iceland, we did not know how to find a restaurant. The typical, "Ask a local" was difficult, because we were staying in an AirBnB and did not know where the tourist places were. We put Restaurant into the GPA. Up...More

Great place to take a stroll. Eating or shopping, this place has it all. From hand-made local arts to the "kitchy" commercial trinkets. Also, the restaurants here can be absolutely amazing! Go, have fun and enjoy!!!
