Location & Nearby
CenterHotel Laugavegur, as its name suggests, is located on Laugavegur, the main shopping street in downtown Reykjavik. Along this strip, you’ll find boutiques, restaurants, bars, and cafes, as well as a supermarket called Bonus. At the end of the road, just over half a mile (a kilometer) away, you’ll reach the downtown area, which has even more places to shop, dine, and drink.
Reykjavik’s major attractions are also within easy walking distance. Only 711 yards (650 meters) away is Hallgrimskirkja church, a beautiful feat of architecture with a striking organ and great views from its top floor. Similarly mesmerizing and only slightly further away is the Harpa Concert Hall, which sits right by the harbor. You can go on northern lights cruises in winter, puffin-watching trips in summer, and whale watching tours year-round from this port.
If you want to access more peripheral sites in the capital, the Hlemmur bus station is just 383 yards (350 meters) away. From here, you can easily reach locations such as the Laugardalslaug swimming pool, the Sky Lagoon, and the Grotta lighthouse. If you are not renting a car, you can also use this bus station to reach nearby natural attractions, including Mount Esjan and the Reykjadalur hot spring valley.
Due to its central location, tour operators can pick you up for excursions into Iceland’s landscapes from a meeting point right by the hotel. Snowmobiling, snorkeling, scuba diving, horseback riding, and glacier hiking are just a few examples of excursions that you can enjoy throughout the year. Summer travelers can go river rafting and highland hiking, and winter travelers can go northern lights hunting and ice caving.
Those who are driving themselves can also embark on several sightseeing trips themselves. The nearest site of the Golden Circle, Thingvellir National Park, is 28.5 miles (46 kilometers) away, while the Gerduberg cliffs, the closest attraction of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, is 74 miles (119 kilometers) north. The South Coast is also accessible, as Seljalandsfoss waterfall is 79 miles (127 kilometers) east.
