Laugavegur shopping street
For the best shopping experience in Reykjavík we recommend you hit the downtown area of the city which is where most of the shops and boutiques are concentrated. Whether you’re looking to get a gift or souvenir, something unique from one of our many talented designers or even a midnight snack, the city centre is well supplied with brand names, obscure fashion shops, quality art studios and convenience stores.
A wander around the city’s famous shopping streets of Laugarvegur and Skólavördustígur will lead you to some gorgeous little boutiques and charming shops where you’re sure to discover fashion treasures ranging from the ultra-modern and concept -driven to vintage classics from the golden era! If you prefer the mall experience and those global brands, you can take a trip to Kringlan – home to around 150 shops, restaurants and services under one roof.
