is the capital and largest city of Iceland
. It is the world's northernmost capital
of a sovereign state. It is located in southwestern Iceland. The Reykjavík area coastline is characterized by peninsulas, coves, straits, and islands. It might not be a big town compared to many others but it has loads to offer to anyone visiting. Lodging, accommodations, vacation rentals, condo rentals and apartment rentals are available year round.
Temperatures very rarely drop below −15 °C (5 °F) in the winter. This is because the Icelandic coastal weather in winter is moderated by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. Summers are cool, with temperature fluctuating between 10 to 15 °C (50 to 59 °F), sometimes exceeding 20 °C (68 °F).
Reykjavík is often dubbed "the nightlife capital of the north"
. It is famous for its nightlife during the weekends. Icelanders tend to go out late so bars that look rather quiet can fill up suddenly—usually after midnight on a weekend. There are over 100 different bars and clubs in Reykjavík; most of them are located on Laugavegur and its side streets. It is very common for an establishment that is a café before dinner to turn into a bar in the evening. Closing time is usually around 6 am at weekends and 1 am during the week. Book your accommodation, condo rental, apartment rental or condo rental and experience a night out unlike anywhere else.
Reykjavik´s proximity to nature is almost unmatched with unspoiled nature
right at its doorstep. A great way to experience the untouched nature first hand is to take a day tour with some of the excursion and activity companies. Tours are scheduled daily and hotel pick-up is usually offered.
If you plan to explore Iceland´s country side, then Reykjavik is a perfect place to start your adventure. Stay in accommodations, vacation rentals, condo rentals and apartment rentals in and around town and explore the best of Iceland.
Reykjavik hosts a great selection of museums
that cover anything from history to photography. Many are located in a walking distance from the downtown area. Most popular are the National Museum of Iceland, The Settlement Exhibition and the National Gallery of Iceland. Geothermal pools
can be found all around Iceland. Reykjavik alone has 5, one in each part of the city.
Warm seafood soup and Icelandic fish and potatoes in white sauce called “plokkfiskur” with rye bread, baked near a hot spring, on the side is offered at the harbour market. The company “Íslensk hollusta”, or Icelandic health foods, offer a selection of food products that are processed out of the wild Icelandic nature such as Icelandic moss, angelica, berry juice and seaweed. The fish market by the old harbour is open every Saturday during summer from 10:00 – 17:00.
