Reykjavik Iceland Shopping
If you want to bring some of your favorite items from your home in the USA or other parts of the world to Iceland, we have it for you. For ease of use, we have created an easy-to-use guide to all of our favorite shopping stores in Reykjavik Island. Here is a list of items you should not leave without, as well as some tips on what to look out for when you take them home to Iceland.
The above mentioned shops are Hus Handanna Art and Design Shop, Hus Art & Design Store and Hus Kjartan. Hus handanna Art and Design Shop is located in the city centre of Reykjavik, just a few blocks from the main shopping street.
The nearest place to shop in Iceland is the tiny municipality of Stodvarfjordur, nestled in the beautiful narrow fjords of the same name. It's more expensive than the cheap Icelandic supermarkets, but it's also bigger than many of the bonus stores and carries the best Icelandic food. There are also many bonus shops in Reykjavik, and you can be sure to find another bonus shop in your area, such as Hus Kjartan, Hus Handanna Art and Design Shop or Hus Art & Design Store. They have a wide range of products, from clothing and accessories to clothing, accessories and food.
Iceland's grocery stores offer some of the best local food as well as a wide selection of local food that you shouldn't necessarily buy. You should not expect to find a grocery store in every small town, but in most major cities there is a kind of Icelandic supermarket. Many smaller towns are quite remote, and Iceland's supermarkets are usually only accessible by car, so you should eat locally when traveling.
Because of its affordability, the Bonus Reykjavik Store is one of Iceland's most popular supermarkets. The products are distributed throughout Iceland and can be found in many major cities in Iceland as well as in some smaller towns. You can also buy beauty products in the many beauty shops in the city, such as the beauty department in the beauty shop in Keflavik.
Most of your shopping can be done in Reykjavik, but there are some more limited options if you are travelling outside the city. The food is much more expensive at Hagkaup supermarket in Iceland, but it is always open, which is great for the times when you have to go for a run and all the other grocery stores are closed. You can pick up perishable goods in other stores or you can find many supermarkets in the price range. When you go on a tour of Iceland, you can also pick up the food stalls where you eat during your tour with local Icelandic food.
If you want to see something truly unique during your time in Reykjavik, I recommend you take a look at this visit. Although slightly more expensive, this small chocolate shop is uniquely Icelandic in batches and is located outside the city of Reykkavík. Their products can be found in a variety of shops in the city, but especially in the boutique, where people like to shop.
If you have a passion for alternative music and can get lost browsing for hours, you should visit this store in Iceland. If you are looking for a supermarket on the ring road outside Iceland, visit Netto if you have not already done so.
This is a great place to buy lopapeysa (local handicrafts) at the oldest shop in Reykjavik, Thorvaldsens Bazaar. Kronan is one of Iceland's supermarkets, which is aimed at budget shoppers, and it is a bonus if you find a good selection of local food on the market, as well as some of Iceland's best wines.
Icelanders also love design, and some of the best local design shops in Reykjavik can be found in the city centre Museum of Icelandic Design. The museum has a good selection of art, works of art, sculptures, paintings, books and more, which fill the good shopping possibilities in and around Reykavík.
If you want to buy some nice Icelandic souvenirs for someone who likes jewellery, there are plenty of places to buy souvenirs in Reykjavik. Gullfoss Geyser has some great geysers, and you'll have a good chance of finding Icelandic jewelry when you explore Reykavik and even attractions and souvenir shops. If you are looking for a nice gift for your friend or family member or even just for yourself, take a look at Kolaportide Reykkavk. One of the must-see shopping destinations in the city centre is Handknitting Island, one of Iceland's most popular places and the place where I first went on my first trip to Iceland as a child.
There are definitely many shops in Iceland where you can buy Icelandic souvenirs that fit easily in your backpack. The famous Lopapeysa (Icelandic sweater) is also great to take away and can be bought in big shops around Reykjavik. On the knitting island you will also find great gift items such as handbags, scarves, necklaces, hats and even jewelry.
