Blue Lagoon, Reykjavík

First up, is the Blue Lagoon. Which is a geothermal spa, between the airport and Reykjavík.

The Blue Lagoon, is a must, when visiting Iceland. The place is just beautiful to look at. With its serene scenery and milky blue waters.

You just want to stay forever.

Please note; It is actually not allowed, to go out into the lagoon, wearing normal clothing, to take photos. (Want to know how I found this out?)

So, if you want to get some great shots of the place, without freezing to death. It’s best to do them all, before getting wet. Or you could bring a waterproof camera.

Once you’re in the water, you will not want to get out, believe me it’s really cold!!

 

Harpa…

Is a Concert Hall and Conference Centre, that opened in 2011. Designed beautifully, with colourful, honeycomb, glass panels, that was inspired by the basalt landscape that can be found in Iceland.

It has; restaurants, a souvenir shop and even free wifi! The building is free to enter and to look around, unless you want to watch a show. Then there is a charge.

Hallgrimskirkja, Reykjavík’s Church

If you’re visiting Reykjavík, you can’t miss Hallgrimskirkja. I’m serious, it’s like the tallest building in Reykjavík and the sixth tallest structure in Iceland.
 
Not to mention, it’s on a hill!!
 
It’s literally, impossible to miss this place, and why would you want to? After all, it’s an amazing piece of architecture!! With it’s unique outer basalt columns, the design was inspired by Iceland’s nature. Which forms the polygonal joint patterns, when lava flow and cools slowly.
 

Hallgrimskirkja is known as one of the worlds strangest and most beautiful place of worship. Taking about 41 years to build.

Rainbow Road

Located in one of the main streets, in the heart of Reykjavík’s city centre. The Rainbow Road was created to celebrate Reykjavík’s Pride.

This was a sign of joy and support for diversity.

 

Tjörnin…

Is a beautiful pond, located a bit outside of the city centre. On a clear day, you can get a beautiful reflection of the houses opposite, reflecting in the pond.

Which is great for photos or just a walk!

For some reason, there’s always, seem to be lot of birds here, day and night.

 

Sun Voyager

The Sun Voyager, is described as a dreamboat or an ode to the Sun. I’ve read somewhere online, the artist intended it to;

‘convey the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom’.

The Sun Voyager is certainly a unique piece of art work, infused with both modern and Icelandic aspects.

 

Reykjavík’s Colourful houses

Reykjavik has tons of colourful buildings, all over the city centre. Therefore, why not take this chance to make your Instagram, more colourful.

Although, the houses are dotted all over the city centre, you might be interested to know, there is a section of Reykjavik that is known for it’s colourful houses.

Grjótaþorpið, one of the oldest neighbourhoods. Where the first set of houses was ever built, for the settlers to Reykjavik.

Now the neighbourhood, is protected by the local government. So not only, would you be able to see the original styles of the houses as it was designed back in the day. But also see how each house has it’s own unique colours.

 

Street art In Reykjavík

I have to say, street arts has always intrigued me. They are usually beautifully expressed, full of soul, with a lot of meaning behind it.

The ones in Iceland, are the same. Although you might have to do a bit of hunting to find them.

But definitely, worth looking for, if you’ve got the time.

So, that was;
