Shopping in Reykjavík, Iceland

If s-h-o-p-p-i-n-g is how you spell vacation, then there are four streets in Reykjavík to explore: Austurstr, Bankastræti, Laugevegur and, in this photo, Skólavörðustígur. You will find many boutique shops (and an occasional chain like Nordic Store) carrying Icelandic products. The most popular items are hand-knit wool clothing, artisan jewelry and handicrafts plus lots of souvenirs featuring puffins. You might also like visiting a flea market. Another option with about 150 stores is the Kringlan Shopping Mall. One word of caution: everything in Iceland is expensive, so don’t expect to find any bargains.


Bankastræti 11, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
