The world’s most northern capital city is a year-round destination as perfect for a mini-break as for a wider tour of Iceland.
Famed for its colourful houses, Reykjavik has a distinctively chilled-out vibe, with an inviting, cosy feel which gives visitors a warm welcome despite its uber-cool climate.
Although one of the smallest capital cities in the world, Reykjavik has much to attract visitors in itself; from its first-class restaurants to its fascinating art galleries.
A great base for your stay on the volcanic island, the Icelandic capital is a gateway to its country’s many incredible places of interest, with easy access to the major sights of Southern Iceland’s Golden Circle, Thingvellir National Park and Gullfoss Falls to name a few.
It’s also seen as the gateway to a Northern Lights experience during the winter months - which you’re most likely to witness between the months of October to March – and also for visitors yearning to head out to sea on a whale-watching boat trip.
Of course, one of Iceland’s finest attractions which plays host to most of our travellers to the island is the Blue Lagoon. This incredible natural spa is just 40 minutes’ transfer from Reykjavik and offers its visitors the ultimate oasis in which to relax.
Modern, edgy accommodation is available across the Iceland capital in the form of hip hotels such as the sleek 101 Hotel, boutique hotel Apotek in the heart of the city, the warm and cosy luxury suites of the Reykjavik Marina Residence and for a ‘room with a view’ look no further than the Tower Suites.
