Oskjuhlid is rightly called a natural pearl. More than 176,000 trees have been planted on the hillside, resulting in a woodland setting which is rare within the city which is appreciated by natives and visitors alike. The bicycling and walking paths are much frequented and afford many pleasant moments, however, it is easy to find peaceful glades where it is easy to forget the bustle of city life.
The finest in Icelandic cuisine
For fine dining, there is nothing to beat the Perlan Restaurant. Whilst your taste buds enjoy the thrill of superb cuisine, your eyes will enjoy a spectacular panoramic view of Reykjavík and beyond as the restaurant gently completes a full rotation every two hours.
