​It's no wonder that Reykjavik is rising to be one of the most popular Bachelor party destinations in the world. 

Iceland is perfect if you want to do something unique, different and out of the beaten path!

Secondly, the Reykjavik nightlife is amazing and famous for being unlike anything else.

Last but not least - where else can you climb glaciers, walk behind waterfalls, chase whales, northern lights or snowmobile on glaciers ... right before you strap on your disco shoes for a night out on the town?

In reality, I could go on for days. But here are my top 8 reasons why Reykjavik, Iceland is the perfect travel destination for a one of kind bachelor party weekend.

1. Flights to Iceland are (usually) easy & cheap

Even though Iceland is in the middle of nowhere in the Atlantic ocean - It is still very close to East Coast US, Canada and mainland Europe (5-6 hrs). Even West coast US is not all bad! Flights to and from Iceland have in recent years dropped significantly in price. Mostly thanks to competitive prices from the Icelandic airlines WOW air & Icelandair.

If you are still looking for flights to Iceland, we recommend using the Icelandic flight search engine DoHop.

2. The legendary Reykjavik nightlife

​All the bars & clubs in Reykjavik are on one street called "Laugavegur" (the main shopping street). Therefore, you can in 20 minutes walk by over 80 bars and soak in the Icelandic party scene and choose the right crowd, music & atmosphere you are looking for.

Icelanders are known for throwing great parties and nightclubs in Reykjavik are open until 4.30AM. The two best nightclubs in Reykjavik are Austur & b5.
