Coliving destinations in Iceland

Coliving in Reykjavík

Reykjavík

Coliving in Reykjavík

Reykjavik is on the coast of Iceland and is the capital city. With the vast majority of its citizens living here. As a coliving destination, it’s ideal for a few reasons including the access to the stunning northern lights, as well as the hot lagoons, and the breath-taking sea views. It is a mind-boggling beautiful location for any digital nomad to experience.

When staying in the small capital there will be plenty of time to see everything you want to see, mostly because it is not the biggest of places. Instead take your time to enjoy the sights in between work breaks, and on weekends. In the center of the city stands the Hallgrímskirkja Church, which is worth a visit alone just for the 360° views over the city. Next, you can explore the city by foot or bike and fill up on some of the local cuisines. Feeling adventurous? Why not try the Matur og Drykkur is the cod's head cooked in chicken stock. We’ve heard from our sources it’s delicious.

Wandering around the city, you may come across the Kolaportið, an eclectic flea market. Here you can buy a lopapeysa (hand-knitted wool jumper) to keep you warm, but do try some locally-loved shellfish and visit the other stalls. The community is smaller than you think, so be involved. Also, get yourself to one of Reykjavik's many swimming pools whilst you’re living there, it’s not to be missed. We recommend Nautholsvik, due to the fact it’s geothermally warmed up, toasty bodies all around. Reykjavíkurtjörn, Reykjavík's city pond is popular with nomads, especially ones who love birds. You’ll experience sightings of both swans and ducks. And if you visit in Winter, it should be frozen enough to ice skate on.

We won’t lie to you, this coliving hub is on the pricey side, and it can get super cold. We would say it’s more of a holiday destination than a coliving experience. Yet the locals are friendly to foreigners, there’s great Internet and the whole experience is encased in a relaxed vibe, which makes this city something a little bit out of the ordinary.

Fun facts about Reykjavik:

- Reykjavík is home to a major puffin breeding colony!
- Nearly two-thirds of the country’s population lives in the capital area, but still, it is a very small, big city
- Cat lovers unite in this furry friend loving capital
- There is no Starbucks or McDonald’s in this city, the only capital in Europe with this claim to fame

What is coliving?

Coliving is a new trend amongst millennials for renting shared apartments. Whether you're moving to Reykjavík for work or just looking for a new apartment, coliving in Reykjavík is a good way to save money and live with like-minded people. Co-living places people from different backgrounds together and encourages them to interact, collaborate and form new friendships. When compared to dorms, coliving is much more attractive, since it's relatively inexpensive, all-inclusive and allows you to rent a furnished room with an individual lease.
