Neighborhoods to Book a Hotel in Reykjavik
One of the oldest areas in Iceland to be ever settled, the Austurvollur is surrounded by a wealth of structures that look quite different from Typical European buildings. In the heart of the square you will find the statue of Jon Sigurdsson, the national Hero of Icelandic freedom Movement against Denmark. Don’t miss the embossment of Pioneer on the pedestal.
Located in the eastern part of Reykjavik, the Eastern Pier has the only four whale-hunting ships that are now used for whale tours. The seafront area is ideal for a leisurely stroll. After a walk you can visit one of many restaurants serving delicious local food.
Moving south of city center will take you to the forested area of Oskjuhlid Hill. The area offers a lot of excellent spots for walking, jogging as well as biking. But the major crowd pullers of this area are Nautholsvík Beach, Saga Museum and the Pearl.
