Located right next to Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, the municipality of Kopavogur is a very underrated place that is usually overlooked by tourists and travelers alike. A lot of people are unaware of the wonders and tourist spots that Kopavogur has to offer. There are a lot of great museums in the town that features modern and contemporary art like Gerðarsafn and Natural History Museum. You can also go shopping as Smáralind, Iceland’s largest shopping mall, is located in Kópavogur. Places to relax such as swimming pools and hot tubs can be also found all over Kopavagur. If this small town is worth of visiting, here are some of the best Airbnbs in Kopavagur, Iceland.
Located near the city center and the best parks, this place along the shore is a great place for couples and families to stay. Because it is just along the shore, you can enjoy easy access to the beach. It is also very close to supermarkets, restaurants, and shops. There’s also a swimming pool with warm water and barbecue on site. The home also comes with free WiFi, an LED TV with cable and satellite channels, and a washing machine.
