Within the park around the Laugardalur Valley area is a botanical garden, campsite, and the only zoo in Iceland, the Reykjavik Family Park and Zoo.

Once you’re in the city center, be sure to visit the top sights such as the Hallgrimskirkja Church, the Harpa Concert Hall, and the Einar Jonsson Sculpture Garden.
