Popular accommodations in Reykjavik
Do you like to turn night into day? Then a trip to Iceland and an apartment in Reykjavik might be just the thing for you. High in the north lies the icy island, characterised by caves, straits, peninsulas and fjords. The special thing about Iceland – it lies directly below the Arctic Circle – is the light conditions. If you rent private accommodation in Reykjavik, the capital and largest city on the island, you will soon notice that the nights here are as bright in summer as the days. On the other hand, in winter, on the shortest days, the sun shines only four hours. Reykjavik is located on the southwest side of the island on the Atlantic Ocean and extends in all directions with suburbs. Nowhere else on the island is it more populated. So book an apartment in Reykjavik and take a trip to the surrounding area from there. Here you can find truly luxurious accommodations, which you have alone for yourself and your companions and which you don’t have to share with your landlord as you do with couchsurfing in Reykjavik.
Apartments in Reykjavik: central and close to the sea
Reykjavik is still relatively young as a popular tourist destination. But since a very active artistic and music scene has developed in the city, Iceland has become more and more interesting for holidaymakers. For example, the singer Björk and the artists Einar Jónsson and Ásmundur Sveinsson have become world-famous. Reykjavik was even named the 29th UNESCO City of Literature in 2011. You can also book a large Apartment in Mosfellsbaer, which is about 15 kilometres north of the capital. From there you can make excellent cycling and hiking tours or climb a mountain: The access to Esjan is in this place; the ascent to the summit at an altitude of 1,000 meters takes about three to four hours.
Private accommodation in Reykjavik: Discover art and culture!
Numerous museums invite you to visit – from art and photography to medicine and of course regional history, the range is wide. For travellers with an interest in architecture, there are lots of old and above all modern buildings to see in the capital. The construction boom is not yet over. The Harpa Concert Hall right next to the harbour is impressive, its façade almost entirely made of glass, as is the city’s landmark: the Hallgrímskirkja church tower is 74.5 metres high and the viewing platform offers a phenomenal view over the city and the snow glaciers on the horizon. And if you would like to see the Stratovolcano Snaefellsjökull, famous for its almost unspeakable name, you should book a holiday apartment in Gufunes. Of course we will also help you if you want to travel to the capital of the neighbouring country Norway and live in a Loft in Oslo. Or have a look at Sweden and decide for an Apartment in Stockholm. The North awaits you!
