Reykjavik Christmas market breaks.

Reykjavik Christmas market breaks

Christmas in Reykjavik is fairly low-key, as it is considered a family time, but there are some beautiful Christmas markets in and around the city. On Ingólfstorg square, you’ll find the aptly named Yule Town, where you can shop for Christmas treats, toys, handmade ornaments and decorations, and all things festive. Not to be missed is the delicious Jólaöl, a festive non-alcoholic drink made from orange, botanicals and malt. Or for those looking for something much stronger, a shot of Brennivín should warm you up in the freezing temperatures. We recommend a stay at the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica, one of the city’s most stylish hotels and perfect for a Christmas city break.
