Gay Pride Spotlight: Reykjavik

Reykjavik Gay Pride

Reykjavik’s Gay Pride, now in its 14th year, welcomes over 85,000 visitors every year as the city comes alive with theatre and comedy shows in the Harpa Concert Hall, outdoor ‘rainbow’ family festivals, fantastic nightlife, live music, a Pride Dance and the grand finale – the Gay Pride Parade, for which three quarters of the capital cities population flocks to the streets to support.

This August, visitors can enjoy the Gay Pride festivities in Reykjavik from 8 – 11 August and while you’re there we highly recommend that you stay at the funky Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Marina. Its close proximity to the city centre and the heart of the Gay Pride action makes it the ideal base from which to explore all that Reykjavik and its surroundings has to offer.
