Meet Clizia, our front desk agent at Center Hotels Laugavegur.

She has a few favorite places and things to do in Iceland.

Few of the things I will never get bored of in Reykjavík are walking or running along the coast in Laugarnes (especially when we have snow, it’s magical!), a cold/hot dive in Nauthólsvík, and relaxing with a coffee or happy hour in one of the many lovely places downtown. I am a rooftop bar lover, so I often visit Petersen or Loft. I also love Flóran cafe at the Botanical Garden: it´s a lovely cafe in a greenhouse and a lot of tables outside.

After the long winter I take every opportunity to be outdoor! :D Outside of the capital area my absolute favorite is to go glacier hiking (or snowmobiling): glaciers really are something else, I find them so fascinating. But I love hiking everywhere in Iceland, the nature is so beautiful and so powerful, I can never get bored of it. :)

Icelandic Christmas Season
Icelanders LOVE their Christmas traditions and most families hold onto them very strongly. Here you will learn about some of them.
A Famous Little Tourist Volcano
The volcano in Fagradalsfjall is still going strong, new fissure vents keep opening and the everchanging volcano has not only caught the attention Icelandic hikers but planetry scientist, international news media and even musicians and wedding planners.
A local favorite
Visiting a local thermal pool in Iceland is a great and inexpensive fun for the whole family and a great way to experience the local culture.
Eurovision & Húsavík
The Eurovision song contest is an international song competition held annually, usually in May. The small town Húsavík served as the setting for the 2020 Netflix movie Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. The title song from the movie is also named Húsavík and the song received an oscar nomination for Orignal song for a film.
Iceland Airwaves
Iceland Airwaves is the most important music festival in Iceland and is held every year in early November at various music venues, record stores, art museums, bars and even in a church, all located in downtown Reykjavík.
