Beyond Bankastræti and on up the small hill is Laugavegur (hot spring road); local washerwomen once walked this way to the springs in Laugardalur. This is Iceland’s major commercial artery, holding the main shops and a fair sprinkling of cafés, bars and restaurants. Not surprisingly therefore, on Friday and Saturday evenings in summer it’s bumper to bumper with cars, horns blaring and with well-oiled revellers hanging out of the windows.
