Information for Travelers
Reykjavik, on the coast of Iceland, is the country's capital and largest city.
The city sweeps you away with its quaint, vibrantly colored coastal homes, unique boutiques and reminders of the country's Viking history at every turn.
The land of fire and ice is naturally stunning, so the backdrop is memorable, whether you stroll through the charming downtown streets, enjoy a sightseeing tour, or relax in one of the city's 17 thermal pools.
An example of volcanic activity on the island is the Blue Lagoon geothermal bath in the nearby village of Grindavik.
The best view of Reykjavik is from the Hallgrímskirkja church tower in the heart of the city.
Downtown is unlike any downtown scene you've ever experienced.
Instead of kitschy souvenir shops, you'll find independent boutiques selling unique items like Icelandic wool clothing and volcanic rock ceramics.
Take the time to enjoy the shops and fine restaurants serving traditional dishes.
Reykjavik is a mecca of impressive architecture and cultural elements.
You will feel the deep roots of Viking history mixed with the contemporary energy of modern creativity.
In this city are located the National Museum and the Museum of the Saga, which illuminate the island's Viking past.
The impressive and modern Hallgrimskirkja church building and the revolving glass dome of the Perlan building offer a panoramic view of the sea and the surrounding hills.
