One of the places a lot of friends seem to be traveling to lately is Iceland. I can't say enough about it and highly recommend a trip. I was in Reykjavik in late October 2015 for a long weekend and I can't wait to get back again in the Spring or Summer when I can go see Puffins and go whale watching!
Two Chekammendations I have for Reykjavik involve food - surprise, surprise - and one is how to avoid the exorbitant cost of alcohol when you get there.
1. Alcohol in Iceland is very expensive. When you arrive in Reykjavik, swing by the duty free in the airport (don't worry, everyone does it) and pick up anything you might want while visiting. Everything is a lot cheaper, and duty free, than purchasing alcohol in a bar or restaurant. I went with a group in a great airbnb and we did aperitivo at the apartment prior to going out to dinner, which saved us some $.
2. Dill Restaurant - Dill is an amazing restaurant in Reykjavik that had amazing locally sourced food and extremely reasonable prices for a tasting menu. We were lucky to get a reservation for 6 when there, but most of the reservations are for 4 at the max. Fortunately everyone in Iceland is VERY nice and they accommodated us. I have recommended this place to a few people since I got back and they have had a hard time getting in, so definitely suggest making a reservation early, especially since they just received a Michelin Star in 2017!
3. Secret Pizza and hot dogs - seriously. These are definitely not the best pizza, hot dogs, or even food, you will get in Reykjavik, but they were fun and different. The pizza place doesn't have a name (that's why it's Secret!), but its address is Hverfisgata 12 in Reykjavik. The hot dog place is just a walk up cart/stand called Baejarins Beztu Pylsur on Tryggvagata 1 in Reykjavik.
There was so much to do and see in Reykjavik and Iceland in general. If you're interested in planning a trip, reach out!
