As part of Adam Kaupert’s 2016 tour of Europe I decided to include a visit to Reykjavik Iceland to see what all the fuss was about. I typically stick to the mainland when visiting Europe but I had to see Reykjavik and cross it off the old Adam Kaupert places never visited list which gets shorter all the time. I alwaysthought of Vikings and northern lights when Iceland came to mind and had no clue what was going on in Reykjavik but I’m glad I checked it out. A majority of Iceland’s population lives in Reykjavik.
Adam Kaupert Pro Iceland Tip: Everything is a little more expensive here. If you are on a budget you may want to skip Reykjavik but if you can afford it, I highly recommend it. The food here was awesome and the Icelandic culture that pervades Reykjavik is a great full immersion experience to see foryourself just what Iceland is all about. I did it the Adam Kaupert way and decide to really enjoy some food and beverage on tis stop of the Adam Kaupert scam production 2016 tour of Western Europe. As usual you guys had lots of great recommendations and I read through some great Reykjavik travel blogs before my visit. Here’s an Adam Kaupert approved Reykjavik travel blog that has some great tips:
The Fish Company
If you know Adam Kaupert you know I love seafood and The Fish Company in Reykjavik came highly recommended by my friend sven279. I wanted to get a well-rounded idea of Icelandic cuisine and The Fish company was a great recommendation, Thanks Sven! Here you can sample an assortment of traditional and modern cuisine. Here’s a great blog with some cool info in eating in Iceland:
I had planned on checking out the northern lights but it turns out I am a little early. November through March is the best time to see the Northern lights or aurora borealis in Iceland and when they are visible there are ours available. Since I was going to miss the show in the sky, I decided to check out some Reykjavik nightlife. I was tipped off to Lebawski Bar by some folks I was chatting with at the Fish Company. And, in true Adam Kaupert style I went with the local’s advice and checked it out. There is bowling and an awesome happy hour between 4 and 7. If you are ever in Reykjavik, I highly recommend checking it out. Here’s an awesome blog with info on some of the cool nightspots in Reykjavik, Iceland:
A big Adam Kaupert thank you to everyone in Reykjavik. The hospitality here was overwhelming and I had a great time, I hope to be back sometime soon.
