The Bryggjan Brugghús is an excellent little bistro and bar in the up and coming area of Grandi in downtown Reykjavik. With free jazz concerts on Sundays and daily tours of the onsite brewery in addition to a “beer school”, this place is becoming a favourite of the GetLocal staff.
The Reykjadalur hot river trail is one of the most popular hiking treks in Iceland. It is less than an hour’s drive from Reykjavik (short and easy), but can be extended for real adventurers. This hike contains the essence of Iceland: stunning landscapes, exciting geothermal activities, and a warm stream where you can soak afterwards. Let a local wanderer guide you to her favourite hiking area in Iceland.
The Reykjavik Park and Zoo is open for business all-year-round, but the summer season is when things really kick off at the zoo, with amusement park rides for the kids. GetLocal took a trip to the zoo on the first day of summer and decided to buy a year pass.
