Reykjavik is the northernmost capital in the world with a stunning city skyline and backdrop of towering mountains. Though smaller than most capital cities, Reykjavik is buzzing with activity, and its compact size allows you to explore most of the city by foot. There are bars, restaurants, and shops galore here, as well as colourful street murals, independent coffee shops, boutique style hotels, and pretty old buildings.
Immerse yourself in culture at Reykjavik’s impressive museums and art galleries. The city’s National Museum is one to note, allowing an insight into Iceland’s long and rich past through exhibitions and artefacts. The Reykjavik Art Museum is also worth visiting, with a focus on 19th-20th century local art and featured masterpieces from international artists including Picasso. Then there’s the sightseeing attractions; Reykjavik’s towering Hallgrimskirkja church is the city’s finest landmark, gleaming white with a panoramic observation deck.
After exploring the city sights of Reykjavik, you can look forward to witnessing Iceland’s dramatic natural wonders. The Elliðaárdalur Valley, a hidden gem of Reykjavik is definitely worth visiting, as is the Nauthólsvík Geothermal Beach. Venture out a little further to discover the dazzling Blue Lagoon and look forward to a pamper with revitalising mud masks as you sip a refreshing drink at the lagoon’s swim up bar.
