    Find perfect holiday rentals in Reykjavík

    The timber-faced cottages of little Reykjavík cling to the icy rocks of south-west Iceland. They combine with cutting-edge design studios and UFO-like architecture – check the City Hall, the striking Hallgrimskirkja Church and the Harpa Concert Hall – to create an edgy, curious place for the nation's diminutive capital. Reykjavík holiday lettings are the perfect place to base a stay here. They sit close to the buzzing Brennivín bars that come alive after dark, within reach of the steaming Blue Lagoon and surrounded by art galleries and Nordic museums aplenty.

    Adventuring outdoors near Reykjavík holiday homes

    Few cities are as encompassed by wild nature as Reykjavík. With glaciers and snow-mantled peaks on 1 side, gushing waterfalls on the other and rugged black-sand beaches stretching along the nearby coast, there's always an adventure in the offing here. Wintertime means cross-country skiing on the floodlit tracks of the Blafjoll resort, which sits just to the south of the city. Spring sees the snows melt and the hiking trails open up – the green valley and flowering meadows of Esja are close, and so are the craggy tops of the Helgafell peak. Don't forget the swimming gear, either – the Reykjadalur hot springs and other geothermic pools beckon all around.
