ReykjavikOctober 14, 2016 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 10 °C
We finally arrived Reykjavik! Unfortunately two days earlier because of too bad weather for camping..🙁
Reykjavik is a nice little town, for a capital it is rather a calm city. From Monday until thursday we had still Bad weather and therefore we visited the nationalmuseum (a good Option for rainy weather) and checked the nightlife of reykjavik 😊 besides the ridiculous high prices for alcohol (draft pale ale --> 10€, Cocktails ca 15-18€) there are many nice bars and no real clubs. Along laugavegur most of the bars are located. In line with the high prices in iceland our hostels with 35€ in 10bed room per night war also not cheap. We spend our nights in hlemmur square and Bus hostel and both of them we can recommend. Hlemmur square is directly in laugavegur. Bus hostel is cheaper (25€ per night) but blankets will be charged in addition with 1000isk (~8€). In general we can recommend to but food in the supermarket bonus (cheapest) and eat in subway (10€ for the big deal). Otherwise you pay at least 10€ for any Burger, kebap, noodle soup in iceland. At our last day in iceland we allowed us a lunchbuffet in Restaurant reykjavik for not even 20€ and had the offer of a variaty of nice fish side and Main dishes which were really delicious as you can tell for a buffet!
Our trip in iceland will definitely stick in our minds because of the unique and fantastic rough landscape. Renting a car and go camping is the cheapest way to explore iceland and is adventourous at the same time. Otherwise it gets really expensive. A normal guest room in sparsely populated parts of iceland costs at least 70-80€ without breakfast..
Sja aftur iceland!!☺Read more
