Laugardalur Christmas Valley
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. It is open daily from 19 December until Christmas, from 13:00 – 19:00 and on 23 December, from 12:00 – 16:00. It is closed on the 24 and 25 of December. 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 . Flóran Café has a Christmas buffet until Christmas, every Thursday, Friday and Saturday. More information here.
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.
Welcome to Laugardalur Christmas Valley.
