Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, is well known for its residents' love for fun and merry making — so much so that the city is called the "nightlife capital of the north." Tourists are drawn to the city for its amazing geographical history and recent evolution, shaped by volcanoes and earthquakes. With numerous Reykjavik hotels available, visitors to the scenic city do not face a dearth of options in terms of class of hotels, whether budget, business, or luxury.
There are several museums that travelers can visit. The Vikin Maritime Museum, Reykjavik Open Air Museum, and Reykjavik Art Museum, offer exciting insights into the history of Iceland and the Vikings.
Reykjavik hotel guests must not miss out on exciting nightlife. Most clubs are located at Laungavegur and its side alleys. NASA and Astro are nightspots that must be visited.
Tourists would do well to combine two guided tours with the Blue Lagoon. This would take them to a guided tour of stunning craters and lava tube caves and then to Blue Lagoon, the geothermal spa for relaxation and indulgence.
A spectacular architectural sight,Perlan (The Pearl) is a big draw for visitors staying at Reykjavik hotels. A revolving restaurant serving excellent food, under a glass dome, which is built over huge hot water tanks, provides a unique experience.
Tourists staying at Reykjavik hotels can enjoy shopping for fur clothes at Eggert and souvenirs at Islandia.
