Reykjavik Holidays Overview


With more than three fourths of Iceland being declared as uninhabitable, Reykjavik (its capital city) is famous for having some of the most cluttered areas in the world. Reykjavik, popular as the northernmost capital in the world, might be mainly used as a gateway to get into the rugged adventures and breathtaking settings that Iceland has to offer, but the city is no pushover either. It ensures that all of its visitors spend a day or two exploring the various sights that it has to offer and captivates them with its natural appeal, exotic nightlife, friendly people, beautiful buildings and pleasurable sights. A highly recognized music and arts scene also ensures that Reykjavik remains popular among all sorts of tourists and those returning home simply cannot stop thinking about how much would it cost to get back to the city.

The main charm of Reykjavik lies in its unique and queer sights. The city manages to combine village like lifestyles to big city living in order to offer its locals and visitors with an entirely unique atmosphere that cannot be seen or experienced anywhere else in the world. The summer months are known to offer as many as 22 hours of daylight while the sun hardly ever comes out during the winter months. These harsh conditions might sound cruel on paper, but they also help in creating a unique aura that manages Reykjavik to appear and act the way it is.

Reykjavik is also known to be a city that is extremely proud of its Vikings heritage and past. However, it also knows how to act in the present and manages to keep one foot in the future. As a result, tourists can expect to find the various sinful delights of the 21st century along with magnificent treasures from the past located next to each other, fighting with each other for the onlooker’s attention.

Cosy pubs, wild nightclubs, exotic restaurants, luxurious resorts, stylish cafes, world class museums, exquisite art galleries, state of the art geothermal pools, an excellent music and arts scene – whatever be your calling, you can definitely expect to find a lot of it in Reykjavik. Add to this the presence of snow topped mountains, the jaw dropping expanses of ocean and beautiful volcanic surroundings, and you get the perfect city to live in, travel to or think about.
