    Reykjavik Marathon

    by Bjorgvin Updated Apr 4, 2011

    An annual sports event in Reykjavik is the Reykjavik Marathon, which takes place in mid-August in the capital. In the year 2003 we celebrate its 20th anniversary. This event has become immensely popular, and there are thousands of participants from Iceland and abroad every year. You can choose between a full marathon, half marathon or 10km run.

    Easy hike near the city with great view

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mount Esja is a mountain located across the bay from the city. It is a relatively easy hike and the views over the city are great on clear days. Especially recommended is a night hike during the light period in June.

    Sea kayaking on Iceland

    by Saagar Written Jul 29, 2006

    Sea kayaking on Iceland can be very rewarding, but also though. Iceland has a very exposed coast and the lava shores do not always invite happy landings... I did not go this time, but saw kayak groups off Reykjavik harbour and got a little envious... I researched the opportunity, and might give it a try next time.
    Three places seem to catch most of the interest; Flatey toward the NW of Iceland, Stykkisholmur north of Snæfjellsnæs and Reykjavik. A company called Seakayak Iceland seems to be the biggest and mosat professional/experienced operator. They offer everything from beginners cources, children 8-11 courses, tidal races, day and multi-day touring and expeditioning.

    Icelandic Horses

    by seamandrew Updated Jan 13, 2003

    Horseback riding is really a unique experience. The horses in Iceland are of a very pure breed. Iceland has prohibited the import of foreign horses for years. As such, their beautiful, docile horses have developed a unique gait. I didn't get to go horsebackriding, but I will when I return to Iceland. I did notice that you had to get a bit outside of Reykjavik to be able to do this.

    Equipment: Everything is provided by the facility. I did do some research into it.

    There are just couple of gyms in Reykjavik. The biggest one is World Class but it is not near centrum. Good one is Thokkabot, it's in west side and takes about 15minutes from centrum to walk. I really liked the place, there's also spinning and aerobics there. it was year 1999 when I was therebut I hope that Thokkabot is still on the place.
