Summer Streets in downtown Reykjavik, Iceland


Dear Reykjavik Excursions passenger,

This summer Reykjavík City Council has decided to close some selected streets downtown Reykjavík. Laugavegur, Skólavörðustígur Pósthússtræti and Austurstræti become pedestrian streets from 1 May through 1 October and are hence closed for all other traffic. The main reason for the above is to enrich culture and have the chance to create more lively all around activities, indoor and outdoor.

The benefits are:

  • Store owners and restaurants will be able to bring their services partially outside.
  • People are more likely to be on the move and mingle with others.
  • Art becomes more visual.
  • Cars are not allowed in the restricted zones.
  • And many more ...

We sincerely hope that you will find something to your taste and expectations during your stay in downtown Reykjavík.
