Christmas Valley in Laugardalur
In December, the whole family can have fun together in Laugardalur Christmas Valley, where Christmas lights and decorations set the mood for a festive Advent.
Prepare for a day out, visiting the animals in Reykjavík Family Park and Zoo and ice-skating around a decorated Christmas tree at the Skautahöll skating-rink. You might want to visit Ásmundarsafn Sculpture Museum, walk around the Botanic Garden, stop by Flóran Café for a cup of hot chocolate, or go for a nice swim in Laugardalslaug thermal-pool.
In Laugardalur Christmas Valley you might run into Jólakötturinn, the Yule Cat; one of many Icelandic Christmas Creatures. The cat resides in the Reykjavík Family Park and Zoo but sometimes sneaks around in other parts of Laugardalur. Listen for a quiet meow and look out for paw tracks.
