Dinner, Thursday May 3rd

At Bergsson RE what we like the most is to cook fish and seafood. Maybe it´s because we watch the fishing ships bring it in out our window and maybe it´s just because it tastes great, who knows. We are mainly a lunch restaurant where punters can be sure to get healthy, tasty and quick lunch. Bergsson Re is also the perfect venue for parties of any kind. Whether it´s a wedding, birthday or gala dinner, we cater for that. At Bergsson RE, we offer healthy and tasty food. We only use the finest ingredients and a vegan and vegetarian-friendly. Our lunch menu changes daily to check out our Facebook for the latest one.

Friday afternoon, 4th of May

Local guided tour in the surroundings of Reykjavík: We have listed three options below, – which one we choose, will depend on weather, but if this is something you like to take part in, please pack warm clothing and wind & waterproof shell, hiking shoes and swimwear ?

Option 1: Hiking – Úlfarsfell

If the weather is good, we will make a hike to the top of Úlfarsfell (296 meters high), a small mountain closer to Reykjavik. The top of the mountain can give a great view over Reykavik area and Faxafloi bay, the Reykjanes peninsula and the Hengill geothermal area.

We have the option to go to one of Reykjavik’s swimming pools after the hike, so we will pick you up at 14:00 at Radisson Blue Saga Hotel and will be back at the hotel at 18:30 the very latest.

Option 2: Hiking – Búrfellsgjá

If it will be a bit windy, we will make a hike to the top of Búrfellsgjá (183 meters high), through a lava channel created some 8000 years ago. The top of Búrfellsgjá offers nice view over Reykjanes pensula.

We have the option to go to one of Reykjavik’s swimming pools after the hike, so we will pick you up at 14:00 at Radisson Blue Saga Hotel and will be back at the hotel at 18:30 the very latest.

Option 3: If the weather is bad – swimming pool!

If the weather is bad (and for those not interested in hike), a visit to Reykjavik swimming pools is always an option. Actually, it is fabulous in bad weather as the water is warm.

Here is an overview over the swimming pools in Reykjavík capital area

One swimming pool is very close to Radisson Blue Saga Hotel, Vesturbæjarlaug.
