Reykjavik tourist information.
As the world’s most northerly capital, Reykjavik’s reputation is one of a cold dark city. But there’s more, much more to this city than you’d expect, with the locals employing a quirky art scene, colourful buildings and a capricious soul to great effect. No wonder it’s an emerging tourist destination.
Reykjavik offers a beguiling small-village community feel while still reaping the effects of being a huge city. Friendly people will smile to you in the street, despite the fact they’re doused by never-ending night when the winter comes around.
Cosy cafés, world-class restaurants, fine museums and galleries, and state-of-the-art geothermal pools – you won’t struggle to find the essentials here, that’s for sure. Add this to a backdrop of snow-capped mountains that glitter with snow like frozen diamonds and you’ve got a truly unique destination. By the time you have to go home, you won’t be ready to leave, no matter how cold you are.
