Reykjavik Lights

The Reykjavik Lights is an attractive hotel on the edge of Iceland’s capital. The interiors here are unique and each room is themed around a specific day in the ancient Icelandic calendar. Local artwork in the rooms also depicts attractions like the Northern Lights and the Midnight Sun, so the hotel’s always celebrating the best of Iceland.

At breakfast time, the restaurant offers a lot of continental choices. With our holidays to Iceland, two excursions are included as part of your package, so the restaurant’s a great place to fill your stomach before you head off to explore. When you return, you’ll find a bar serving drinks.
