Reykjavík

We challenge you to name a more apt city break than Reykjavík in the autumn months. Iceland’s capital is always abuzz with visitors regardless of the season but its colour-block houses and bustling bakeries give it serious appeal for those on the lookout for a cosy weekend away.
Millennials can be found supping coffee at the SandHolt bakery while raincoat-clad hikers can be spotted by the famous cathedral. The city can be tackled in 24 hours so hire a car and hit the open road for picture-perfect waterfalls, shetland ponies and hot springs on route.

Cosy city breaks guaranteed to get you excited for autumn

As we reluctantly put away our straw bag and trusty sandals for another year, it can prove hard not to reflect on what has been one of the greatest summers to date.

But it’s time to stop mourning the heatwave, as autumn is one of the greatest excuses to book a last-minute weekend away with nothing but coffee-in-hand walks and lazy mornings by the fire on the agenda.

From a cosy pod nestled amid Reykjavík’s rugged landscape to the hipster hotspot hidden amongst Amsterdam’s canals, these are the city breaks guaranteed to make you wish autumn would just hurry up already.
