Romantic Things to Do in Reykjavik

Romantic Things to Do in Reykjavik

With its dreamy landscapes and cozy bars, Reykjavik is an ideal destination for a romantic getaway. Plus, its consistently chilly temperatures demand that you get cozy with your sweetheart. Here are a few ways to get romantic in Iceland’s capital.

Hunt the Northern Lights

Seeing the Northern Lights is a spectacular experience that’s best shared with a loved one. Bundle up and head out into the countryside or onto the water to increase your chances of seeing the natural phenomenon. During summer, you can chase the midnight sun instead in an ATV for two.

Take a Dip in the Secret Lagoon

Avoid the crowds of the Blue Lagoon at Secret Lagoon, a much more intimate hot spring experience in the village of Flúðir, east of Reykjavik. The steamy waters are naturally heated to between 100–104˚F (38–40˚C).

Ride into the Countryside

Soak up the otherworldly landscapes surrounding Reykjavik by riding through the countryside on an Icelandic horse. You’ll ride past mountains and lakes, and get the opportunity to pet this unique breed of stead.

Dine at a Top Restaurant

Round off a day in Reykjavik with a romantic meal for two at one of the city’s best restaurants, such as Kopar, famed for its Icelandic specialties. You can even combine dinner with a Northern Lights cruise.
