Top 10 Things To-Do in February in Reykjavik

  • Try some pickled ram’s testicles, pungent shark or boiled sheep’s heads. It’s traditional!
  • Drink some Brennivín to forget about trying these Icelandic delicacies.
  • Speaking of Brennivín, did you know that Iceland’s oldest brewery offers people a chance to visit their bottling plant and learn about Icelandic drinking history in the Taste the Saga Brewery Tour?
  • Stop by one of the many interesting museums Reykjavik has to offer on Museum Night – take the Museum Night bus, it’s free!
  • The days are getting a little bit longer every day, but it’s still dark enough to go see some Northern Lights!
  • Have a geothermally heated soak in an Icelandic swimming pool under the stars, and if you’re lucky, the Northern Lights.
  • Stop by the Volcano House. Not only can you see a documentary with Emmy-nominated footage on the Eyjafjallajökull volcanic eruption, but you can also visit the What’s On staff there. We’ve temporarily relocated our office to the Volcano House due to the renovation of Laugavegur 4.
  • Drink beer! Beer day, the anniversary of the 1989 (!) legalisation of beer is actually March 1st, but the Annual Icelandic Beer Festival at Kex takes place the weekend before, February 24th-27th.
  • Let some electronic music blow your mind at Sónar Reykjavík!
  • When you’re at Sónar, make sure you catch Reykjavíkurdætur, the all-Icelandic, all-female rap collective!
