Shopping in Iceland
Reykjavík offers a wealth of shops, catering to a range of tastes and price points. In general, shops throughout Iceland are open from 10:00 - 18:00 Monday to Friday, from 10:00 - 16:00 on Saturdays and are closed on Sundays. Stores in the Kringlan and Smáralind shopping malls are open on Sundays, as are some shops on Laugavegur, Reykjavík's main shopping street.
For unique souvenirs, we recommend handknit woolen goods like lopapeysa sweaters, maps of Iceland, handmade jewelry, Icelandic designer clothing and accessories, books about Icelandic nature or the Sagas, artworks by local artists, lava rock crafts, chocolate and licorice candies and smoked salmon.
