Reykjavik Botanical Garden - Review

The main attraction in the Laugarnesvegur area east of the city, this botanical garden focusing on research and education has about 5000 plant species represented in regionally thematic collections: Iceland's flora; perennial foreign plants; roses; forest floor plants; trees; rock garden and a gourmet garden. It’s a lovely place for a leisurely stroll. Birders will also appreciate the garden for its thriving avian population. Additionally the Cafe Flora here is a very cute place to grab a bite, where small musical performances and book readings are occasionally organised. The whole place is an especially charming hangout at christmas time.

Reykjavik Botanical Garden, Reykjavik Reviews

  • Nice setting to unplug and relax: we enjoyed a calm walk across the botanical garden and the nearby zoo. It’s a very green area with flowers and animals. Worth having a look. Not easily reachable though without a car: accessibility from Reykjavík could be improved.

  • Beautiful park / garden. It‘s quite small so you can pretty much see everything it has to offer in less than an hour. There is also a small restaurant / cafe for refreshments and free restrooms.

  • Its a small garden but you can't beat the price. Also what's there is very well done and its definitely worth a visit.. there are more than just flowers to see :)

  • All cities benefit from having as many green spaces as possible and the Botanical Gardens in Laugarsdalur is a perfect example of a beautifully composed city park. Well landscaped with a number of ponds, ornate bridges and a wide array of arboreal displays and flower beds, a stroll around these grounds is a perfect escape from the relative bustle and busyness elsewhere. A charming cafe is also available.

  • Very interesting place, did not have time to explore all. Neat and well kept. Cafe with ok lunch. No indoor/tropical section only natives, rock gardens and some systematic areas and arboretum. Young and growing!
