We booked a five day “Volcanoes and Waterfalls” tour with Icelandic Air in August 2015 and flew into Reykjavik airport in the late afternoon. We chose the guided tour rather than self drive because of the amount of driving involved. We were going to be covering hundreds of kilometres.
After checking into the very modern and eco friendly Hotel Natura we took a taxi downtown to explore.
Downtown Reyjkavik is a very vibrant place, with many bars and restaurants to choose from. It’s very popular for stag and hen parties. Iceland at this time of year has approximately 20 hours of daylight .. the land of the Midnight Sun.
Some photos below of the restaurant and downtown.
