As the northernmost capital in the world, Reykjavik enjoys a unique atmosphere few other capitals can match. Overlooked to the north by the volcanic range Esja, this picturesque city is the perfect place for a laid-back break or one filled with action!

 

Laugavegur is the beating heart of the city, a street brimming with bars, restaurants, and boutique shops - stop by one of the cosy cafes to try Icelandic favourites such as rye bread with toppings like herring or trout. If you’re looking to soak up some culture, visit the Reykjavik Art Museum to see modern art by Icelandic artists, or the National Museum of Iceland to dive into the city’s Viking roots.

 

Of course, Reykjavik is also the ideal starting point to discover the wild landscapes of this stunning island - join a tour of the popular Golden Circle, a 230 km route taking in Þingvellir National Park, the Geysir geothermal area and the breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall.
