KOL restaurant is among the top restaurants in Reykjavík Iceland. It's been around since early 2014 and already made it's mark with local & foreign foodies. The environment is pretty classy and trendy, the staff is friendly, and the decor is beautiful! It's a perfect dining place when celebrating e.g. a birthday, honeymoon or a night on the town with friends. The Restaurant is situated at Skólavörðustígur 40 in Reykjavík.

Heading South to Reykjavík ~ #IcelandChallenge Day 7

On our last day, we traveled from Akureyri to Reykjavik which takes about 5 hours.

We spent the time exchanging good music, enjoying the scenery and discussing our favorite parts of the trip. I don’t recommend making this trip in such a short time, but we were excited to get to Reykjavik to enjoy a night on the town!

Patches McGee Trip in Iceland 2013 part 5/5

Patches McGee Trip in Iceland 2013 part 5/5

What should have been a sleep in actually had me awake at 7.30am tending to neglected trip admin and worrying about the whereabouts of my favourite hat in the world. I first noticed it missing yesterday morning when I went to put it on. I know I didn't wear it out the night before to see the Northern Lights (part 4/5) so it must have gone missing earlier that day because sadly, it is nowhere to be found.

Patches McGee Trip in Iceland 2013 part 4/5

Patches McGee Trip in Iceland 2013 part 4/5

After all the excitement of last night (part 3/5), you'd have thought we'd earned a sleep in, but no. It was with great trepidation that I put my Holiday Bootcamp cap back on blew the whistle at 7am to rouse my jet lagged sister and sick mother. It was still dark outside and although they wanted nothing more than to stay in bed, I knew what wonders were awaiting them. I gently insisted they get up and get ready.

Icelandic Food: Culinary Delights and Disasters

Icelandic Food: Culinary Delights and Disasters

Iceland has been one of the leaders of sustainability for some time. The pristine environment and geographical isolation of Iceland means there is no need to use any harmful chemicals, pesticides, antibiotics or hormones on their livestock. Iceland is an 'island' so it is a given that there is an abundance of seafood. No post about Icelandic food would be complete without a good dose of seafood.

So, I thought I'd take you on a tour of the smallest big city, Reykjavík and the Golden Circle. Shall we? By Danielle E. Alvarez

Lebowski Bar - The Reykjavik venue that rocks!

Lebowski Bar - The Reykjavik venue that rocks!

The 1998 film The Big Lebowski by the Coen brothers is not only a film, it has now become a lifestyle. With the emergence of the Lebowski Bar in Reykjavik, everyone can now be a part of The Dude‘s peculiar world. 

Lebowski Bar goes all in, in every way, having divided the interior into four separate themes—bowling alley, a southern-style porch, a ‘50s diner, and a kind of ‘60s playboy lounge bar on the upper floor.
