If you’re feeling brave (and you’re not suffering from a night on the booze) pull on your hiking boots and climb up one of the region's volcanoes or delve a little deeper and explore glittering glaciers, lava tubes and craters in a labyrinth of underground caves. Go snowmobiling, sink into the steaming Blue Lagoon or send the stag on a Sea kayaking excursion before sampling Reykjavik’s eclectic night scene – grab a great slice of pizza at Hverfisgata 12 and wash it down in the the buzzing Mikkeler & Friends micro-brewery upstairs.
