Reykjavik is the most northerly capital city and the first port of call for most visitors to Iceland. This is most certainly "the capital of cool" with colourful buildings, clean streets and smartly dressed locals.
From the university, historic and government buildings, galleries and museums to designer boutiques, shops, cafes, restaurants, bars and clubs to the family park and farmyard zoo, Reykjavik has something for everyone. Once you have spent up in the boutiques, taken a sight seeing tour and eaten at one of the town's restaurants you will be ready for the real reason for a visit to Iceland, exploring its natural beauty.
The capital is a city of contrast, from the bustling harbour and fishing port with its evocative smells and excellent fish restaurants, to the bustle of the modern shopping centre a short walk away.
There are many lovely old buildings to see in Reykjavik including the Parliament house built in 1881. The modern city has great facilities for shopping night life and sports. There are many great heated outdoor swimming pools. Whale watching trips are available from the harbour in season and site seeing trips into the countryside all year round. Why not book a super jeep tour to the Glaciers picked up staright form your Reykjavik Hotel doorstep. The famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is only 50km from Reykjavik and excursions run 4 times per a day throughout the year.
Every evening during winter take a tour to see the northern lights from Reykjavik. If you are think where to see the northern lights then this is the place to go.
