Walk Around Reykjavik on a Winter’s Day Trip
Known as the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state, Reykjavík is the largest city of Iceland, located in southwestern Iceland, on the southern shore of Faxa Bay. Believed to be the first permanent settlement in Iceland, Reykjavik is the heart of everything: from cultural, business, and of course, tourism – and, there’s really much to explore! And will it be a good idea to roam around, if there’s an endless acre of snow? When the air turns thin and cold, we all know that it’s winter season --- but but but, this does not stop Iceland from professing a great deal of photo envy vibe within Reykjavík alone. The colorful rooftops line and the northern seashore of Reykjavík makes everything here really stunning – you have to walk around and see it for yourself!

Reykjavik has 10 districts, Miðborg being the District 2, which is the actual city centre; although, most of the main sights to reconnoiter are scattered around Reykjavik. Of course, there are the absolute must see places like the Hallgrímskirkja — the largest church in Iceland, the Laugavegur – the oldest shopping street in Iceland, the Tjörnin - prominent lake in central Reykjavík, and the Harpa - basalt landscape inspired concert hall in Iceland. Everything is walkable and doable, even oldies and senior citizens would find it easy to do so, and you really don’t need to rent a car to see majority of the places here in Reykjavik. Word of caution though: as it is winter time, it might be a bit uncomfortable to walk around with three to four layers of winter wear, but I personally wouldn’t mind at all. Especially if it’s your first time seeing Reykjavik and you only have a few days or weeks to spare. And, because the beautiful picturesque places are surely worth the temporary small inconvenience. Plus, this is a good excuse to really slow down the walking and enjoy the sights to see! Also, this is a good prep for you, once you start chasing the Northern Lights!

Now of course, if you are interested to know about the best Iceland winter day trips and tours from Reykjavik, there are so many to choose from. While some tours have a limit on age (young children / old folks), there are other tours that require people to be quite fit, offering adventure. Northern Lights, Ice Cave Tours, Glacier Walks, White Whale Watching Tours, The Golden Circle, Silfra Snorkelling tour are some of the ultimate best tours that you can take from Reykjavik, either via a bus tour or by renting your own car and doing a self-drive day trip from Reykjavik in winter. I only had the chance to try a few of these, but I personally would like to go back and try the Silfra Snorkelling and the Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour. Imagine going INSIDE a volcano? Or having the chance to snorkel between two continents? Only in Iceland!

With so much creativity and soul to see in Reykjavik alone, it will be unfair to spend only a day or two walking around and exploring the city. Especially during winter, where there are seasonal activities and festivities, it’s best to give yourself a really good time and do several winter day trips discovering this quirky city.
