The Highlights of Reykjavik, Iceland
It was now the second day that our cruise ship was docked in Reykjavik, Iceland. We did the Golden Circle Direct bus tour the first day. This day we set aside to go into Reykjavik city centre and explore.
The walk was not bad at all. It was nice walking along the water even if it was cold.
We walked around the city centre some more looking for cool stuff. We were also on the lookout for a magnet the shape of Iceland because we like to collect magnets that are the shape of the countries we have visited.
We had heard that Alcohol was really expensive in Iceland so we checked out a sign a sign and saw that it works out to be about $8 CAD a beer which is pretty pricey.
Luckily, there are a few different options for vegans in Reykjavik. Check happy cow.
We found lots more street art and saw Hallgrímskirkja which is an interesting looking cathedral.
We decided to check out Kaffi Vinyl which is the first vegan cafe in Reykjavik.
The food came and it was really tasty. It's too bad that our cruise food wasn't this good. We got a lentil vegetable soup and a wrap. The dressing on the salad was really tasty as well.
We found our magnet the shape of Iceland and there was a Viking face in the hole board outside. There was a nice guy who offered to take our picture. Luckily he didn't run off with our camera. We should probably be more careful.
We made our way back towards the waterfront so that we could follow the same path back to the ship.
The walk back was nice. We were lucky to have had such excellent weather for our time walking around Reykjavik.
The trail to and from the cruise ship is really nice.
We were glad to have finally got a chance to see Reykjavik after all these years of it being on our bucket list.
It's really expensive to stay in Iceland so this was the most affordable way for us to visit since we had food and accommodation taken care of by the cruise.
We said our goodbyes to Reykjavik. It felt like we saw quite a bit but obviously, there is a lot more to see if you want to stay longer. We saw that Bill Murray the movie star was giving a talk or something at Harpa in a couple weeks. It's too bad that didn't coincide with our trip. That would have been cool.
Anyway, if you enjoyed reading about our time in Reykjavik then check out the rest of our posts on our cruise from Southampton to Iceland. We had a great time and saw a lot of places we never thought we'd get to.
