Food & Drink

Reykjavik is a small city with a big pulse. In addition, to great food and drink, the capital of Iceland has a legendary night scene that keeps people going until the wee hours of the morning.

Recommended:
Cheap and delicious noodles: Noodle Station
Great bistro-style food (and a laundromat): Laundromat Cafe
Sushi and traditional Icelandic fare (trust me, it's good): Sushi Samba
Beer, Bar and Hostel: Bunk Bar
Coffee (don't forget the carrot cake!): Top 5 Coffee Houses

Other Activities

Iceland has plenty of ways to keep you busy when you're not running. As an island with extreme natural beauty, there is no end to the sightseeing. Reykjavik has a very walkable downtown with plenty of shopping. No matter what you do don't miss: the remarkable geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, diving between continental plates at Silfra and the hydrologic power of Gullfoss waterfall.
