Nature, at superlative

Reykjavik is a destination for nature lovers, a family-friendly location that offers some of nature’s most spectacular views: the northern lights, beautiful blue lagoons, whale watching, horseback riding, air tours, boat trips and kayaking on the coast of the fjords. Every district of the city hosts a number of thermal pools, filled with geothermal heated water, and spas offering the renowned all-Icelandic volcanic treatments. Reykjavik boasts an enchanting blend of old timber houses and contemporary architecture, with a cozy atmosphere, vibrant street life, and the best shopping experience in Iceland.

Cooking Classes

This is where I take my kids on those weekend mornings. You could find better brunches in Reykjavik and this is sort of a standard fare, but the atmosphere and design is very cool and best of all, in the basement they have books and toys for the kids so the grown ups can relax upstairs. Nice for a quick coffee as well.

Quirky little place Editors' Note

The Laundromat Café is a pretty quirky little place. Quite surprisingly, even with that name, it is indeed a place where travelers can get their laundry done, whilst enjoying a beer or one of their superb coffees.

Laundromat Café is a fun, family friendly place that’s also known for serving up some delicious Sunday lunches, among other things. Another bonus – they have more than 5,000 books here, that you can either read in the café, buy, or trade them for one or two of your own. They also provide board games, today’s newspapers and the most recent editions of several top magazines.
