A Guide To Your Reykjavik Hen Weekend

Where to Drink in Reykjavik

Admittedly, when we think of a hen party in Reykjavik it's the watersports and Northern Lights searching that comes to mind first, not the nightlife. But, don't underestimate the offering of this compact city when it comes to after-hours.

The main street that you'll want to check out is Laugavegur which is where the shops, bars, cafes and restaurants all reside. Going from bar to bar is recommended so you get the full Icelandic experience. The neighbouring streets are a little quieter, but make for the ideal hangouts after a jam-packed day of winter sports adventure!

Sights & Sounds

Sights - After a big night out in this relatively new city, you could end up feeling a little worse for wear. However, a stroll along Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach will help you sooth any aches and pains from the previous evenings excesses. This man-made safe haven is exceptionally calming. It's a great pace to sunbathe during the summer and you can enjoy a relaxing swim at any time of year - it sounds a little crazy, granted, but cold-swimming is actually one of Iceland's oldest traditions!

Sounds - Reykjavik's nightlife is seriously vibrant and it seems that the twenty-something's of this Icelandic town all keep warm at night by convening to par-tay! Austur has a great atmosphere, and while it's a little odd to think of it as a nightclub at first (it looks a bit like a ski lodge, inside and out) once the party gets rocking, you won't want to leave!

Shopping in Reykjavik

Reykjavik isn't known for its daring fashion, but the variety of visually arresting styles you'll see upon landing in this beautiful city are a testament of how dressing for the cold doesn't necessarily mean sacrificing looking good. From chic Scandinavian dresses to glamorous fur coats, the shops here are full of gorgeous threads that'll look perfect around the Christmas markets when you're back home.

Getting Around Reykjavik

While you'll be sorry to hear that the locals don't all get around via husky/reindeer pulled sledges, the Icelandic capital does have an excellent bus network that's perfect for scaling the length and breadth of this fantastic city. You can pay about 350 ISK for a one way ticket, or if you think you might be using the buses a lot you can buy yourself a Reykjavik City Card that'll give you unlimited travel for a set period of time, as well as free entry to most major attractions.

Hen Days

Reykjavik is a phenomenal hen party location, there's a load to do here amidst all the sightseeing and there's a wide variety of activities to try. Whale Watching, Snorkelling and Glacier Hiking are just some of the unforgettable experiences you can take the girls on in this spectacular location. A Golden Circle Tour always makes for a fabulous time, and a visit to the calming Blue Lagoon is a worthy pilgrimage for many a hen party! See more hen activities in Reykjavik.

Hen Nights

The Northern Lights aren't the only thing that comes out at night in this amazing town, all of Reykjavik's bright young things love to party and once the sun goes down the city's streets are always buzzing. Start your evening with a delicious meal in an Icelandic Restaurant before exploring the town's best party spots with our Guided Bar Crawl. Of course, the bride-to-be's big night out wouldn't be complete without Guestlist Nightclubbing!

Shop: Reykjavik shopping areas & recommendations

If it's cool vibes and edgy fashion you're after then there's no shortage of shopping opportunities for you! Reykjavik's laced with funky shops, quirky markets and designer stores, ideal for spending a few hours of retail therapy with your girls. Check out the Kolaportio Flea Market, which is held in a huge industrial building by the harbour every weekend and sells a great range of clothes, music and antiques, or if you're feeling peckish try some Icelandic fish delicacies including cubes of hakarl. Another great shopping area is the Kringlan Shopping Centre, where you'll find top brands like Prada and Hugo Boss as well as a huge mural by the artist Erro and a range of cafes, restaurants, banks, telephones and a cinema. We'd also recommend paying a visit to the clothes shop Liborius, which has a range of high fashion clothes designed by artist Jon Auoarson and has sold pieces to many celebrities, from Metallica to Scarlet Johanssen.

Stay: Choosing your Reykjavik hen weekend accommodation

Having been voted the world's richest city in 2009 the accommodation standards in Reykjavik are high and the service is excellent.

Party: Where Reykjavik hen parties head after dark

Get the girls into gear and celebrate your big hen night in style with our fun evening options! We should mention that in winter the sun can set early - as early as around 3pm sometimes. However, this doesn't affect your entertainment - it just means you can pack more punch into the evening! With over 100 bars and restaurants in the city you won't be disappointed, and many areas of Reykjavik are buzzing and lively all night long on weekends! We can arrange a guided pub crawl for your group, given by an English-speaking guide, who'll take you to the best bars and pubs in Reykjavik, or how about a fun hen meal at a tasty restaurant? Let us know what your group are after and we'll set it all up for you, complete with the ever-popular guestlist nightclubbing! Do bear in mind that many of the clubs in the city have a smart dress code and the minimum age to drink in Iceland is 20.
