The beautiful landscape around Reykjavik lends itself to innumerable outdoor activities. Visitors to Reykjavik will be impressed by the city’s proximity to nature and struck by the cleanliness of the city itself. There are plenty of possibilities when planning outdoor activities and excursions during your stay at the Capital-Inn.
Locals love to spend time outdoors and pursue a wide variety of sports all year round. Icelanders are keen swimmers, horse-riders and skiers (when there is enough snow), while the two most popular spectator sports in Iceland by far are handball and football (soccer).

No less than eight golf courses are to be found within a 20-minute drive from the Capital-Inn. Playing golf in Iceland is an adventure you´ll remember for the rest of your life. Do you think playing golf at midnight surrounded by lava fields sounds too strange to be true? Not in Iceland! Midnight golf is available in summer due to Iceland’s northerly location, and one-tenth of Iceland’s surface is adorned with lava. Sweeping mountains and majestic ocean views characterise Icelandic golf courses, which follow the contours of the naturally dramatic landscape, a popular trend in golf course design today.
