Reykjavik Holidays: An Overview

Reykjavik is the world's most northerly capital and visitors will encounter a vibrant, cosmopolitan city despite its small size.

Harriet and Flora are here to help give you the inside track.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Because it feels like you're in a modest sized British town rather than a capital city, and all the nightlife is within a few minutes walk of anywhere else
  • Wild waves from the North Atlantic crash onto the southern coast, while those pesky and now-infamous volcanoes rise up on your other side

Luxury Reykjavik Holidays: The Detail

With boutique hotels, excellent restaurants and notoriously good (all) nightlife, Reykjavik is a fantastic holiday destination in its own right - perfect for a luxury city break.

Compact, easy to get the hang of – a typical capital city, this ain’t! The joy of Reykjavik is that it's a charming little place with fun nightlife, and it serves as the gateway to so many exciting and adventurous activities in the Icelandic hinterland.
