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