We will send you plenty of suggestions of things to see and do in the city.

The Marathon starts and finishes in Lækjargata in central Reykjavík. See Lækjargata on a map. The information center will be in a building behind the big white school building by the start/finish (see photo below).

Reykjavik Culture Night
This event takes place on the same day as the marathon and is a delight for everybody to enjoy. Culture Night offers free entertainment, fireworks and international and local artists. People from all around the country and from abroad travel to the capital to enjoy various cultural events. This is truly an art festival with all kinds of happenings all over town, be it theatre, music, fine arts, food or just fun.

Day 3 - Leisure Day
Iceland has spectacular scenery and much of this is only an hour or two from Reykjavik. Reykjavik is the jumping off point for many day and half-day trips like; Golden Circle Tour, Volcano Super Jeep Tours, Blue Lagoon Spa, Walk on Glacier, Super Jeep and Snowmobiling, Snorkelling, River Rafting and more options. We can send you some suggestions for day and half day excursions which we can arrange for you.

Day 4 - Departure to the UK
If flight time allows, you can take an optional trip to the world famous Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa on your way to the airport.

Optional Activity:

The lagoon is ideally located between Reykjavik and Keflavik International Airport and therefore it is convenient to use this time to visit before your flight. Enjoy the Blue Lagoon for 2-3 hours. You can book a treatment if you like, have a lunch at the Blue Lagoon or just relax in this wonderful spa. Continue on to Keflavik International Airport about two hours before your flight.

If you do not wish to visit the Blue Lagoon, you will be picked up from your hotel approximately 3 hours before your flight.
