Snow fell on Reykjavik last night and Icelanders are getting ready to go downtown this weekend to experience the wonderful christmas spirit.

Not many are aware but Reykjavik is a hidden secret when it comes to finding the perfect christmas atmosphere. Bars have a number of christmas brews lined up, Cafés and restaurants offer a number of Icelandic Christmas specialties and the shops are all lined up in the nice Laugavegur strip with christmas decorations in every window.

And last night, Reykjavik City introduced the “Christmas Creatures of Reykjavik”, with the aim to create an even better experience in the city during the Christmas season by showing off Icelandic folklore and connecting visitors with the people of Reykjavik. How? Stories, conversations and light shows. Check out to find out how.
