Capital cities are usually filled with energetic neighborhoods and suburbs, and Reykjavik is certainly no slouch in that department! Explore the fascinating neighborhood of Hafnarfjordur, 5 miles to the south of the bright downtown lights of Reykjavik.
Hallgrimskirkja is one of Reykjavik's best-loved attractions.
The staff at Ishestar Riding Tours always ensure that an experience with their beloved animals is a highlight of your vacation. The Hotel Viking and Hotel Hafnarfjordur are two hotel options you'll want to think about if you're interested in staying close by. While we don't hold the answers to some of humanity's biggest questions, you might be able to reflect on them at Hafnarfjordur Free Church, one of the most well-known places of worship in the area. It's possible to reserve a room close by. Two of the most appealing places here are the Harbourfront guesthouse and Hotel Vellir.
Nothing can make your tummy growl and rumble like a big day of sightseeing. Why not rest and recharge with a coffee and a quick bite at the Hafnarfjordur diner, Café Deluxe? When you start feeling especially peckish and need something a tad more satisfying, head to Burger Inn. Paint Iceland is the perfect local hangout to sip on a beer or wine after the sun has set.
