Holiday Opening Hours

Holiday Opening Hours
The boat outside Duus Cultural Center

It is not commonly known but in Iceland we celebrate Christmas on the eve of December 24th. We start eating at home at around 6pm and after the meal and deserts we gather around to open the presents underneath the Christmas tree. Very few people are about and most of the shops, restaurants and museums are closed.

So to make sure you have a great time in the Reykjanes Peninsula in Iceland we have put a small list of opening hours together for you. Now this is not a complete list of all the establishments in Reykjanes Peninsula so if you are not sure weather your the restaurant or museum you want to visit is open, try checking their website or giving them a call.

Enjoy Reykjanes and happy holidays!

The Reykjanes Peninsula

Towns & Villages

Visitors to Iceland who arrive via Keflavik International Airport on the Reykjanes Peninsula may be somewhat surprised by the landscape that greets their eyes as they touch down in Iceland for the very first time. A seemingly endless, green-grey moss-topped lava field blankets the peninsula for as far as the eye can see, and it is this strange and rather other-worldly sight that is your first glimpse of the land of fire and ice.
