Reykjavik travel tips

1) Prefer a passenger car while renting a vehicle in Reykjavik

Renting a car in Reykjavik will help you visit some fascinating natural sights outside the city. Though, think twice before renting a huge SUV. Despite many stereotypes, it's easy to get to all the must-see places with a simple passenger car. Mind that it's better to buy gravel insurance coverage because you'll drive some dirt roads wherever you go.

2) Finish your night fun in the best tradition of Reykjavik in Hlöllabátar cafe

Before going home, when your night merrymaking is finishing, pay a visit to Hlöllabátar cafe on 101 street. Locals usually visit similar places after night binge to have a tasty sandwich before going to bed for better sleeping.

3) Feel like a Viking riding horse not far from Reykjavik

In the country of vikings one can still feel like a viking. You are offered to explore natural sights not far from Reykjavik riding horses, and feeling the historical vibe. Go through lava-laden scenery past mountains, lakes, and moors on a horse breed brought by Vikings.
