Drinking & Nightlife

Sure, Reykjavík is small, but it's bursting with cool coffeehouses and boho bars; likewise Akureyri, but on a considerably smaller scale. Things are more subdued in most regional towns, but it's possible to find quality coffee and/or local microbrews if you know where to look.

Beyond the capital, late-night adventures are less about bar-hopping and more about taking advantage of summertime midnight sun or enjoying a low-key gig.
