After spending a bit of time exploring the inside and outside of Hallgrímskirkja, we continued walking down the streets of Rekjavik, exploring the rest of the quaint city. Most of the buildings in Rekjavik are not particularly tall. The shops around the main shopping strips are at most 3 or 4 storeys high. The city is easy to walk around and navigate, but a map did come in handy. We walked around the old harbour district of Grandi, checked out the exterior of Harpa Concert Hall and took some photos at the Sun Voyager Sculpture.
Iceland is infamous for it’s high costs of living. This means dining out in Iceland is also pretty expensive. As the light slowly disappeared it was time to think of dinner. Given it was our first day in Iceland and we were expecting not to have too many hot meals on the road, we decided to treat ourselves for dinner. We had fish and chips for dinner at Reykjavik Fish & Chips, near the harbour area for around $20 per person. After dinner we headed drove off toward our hotel, located in the next city.
Thanks for stopping by today.
