Exemplifying the island’s volcanic activity is the geothermal Blue Lagoon spa, near the village of Grindavik. Reykjavik is well known for the late-night clubs and bars in its compact center. The regenerated area around the Old Harbour has a concert hall, souvenir shops, and views of Mt. Esja. Shopping options include Downtown Laugavegur’s boutiques and the Kolaportid weekend flea market.
