Excellent

Unusual but welcoming and safe holiday destination

Slightly expensive

As mentioned in my previous review of Icelandair, I recently went on holiday to Iceland, staying in the capital city, Reykjavik. Reykjavik is the northernmost capital in the world, and is also the smallest capital city in Europe, but then Iceland itself doesn't have the largest population either...

Beatiful, crowd-free, unspoiled

Cold (just wrap up warm) and expensive

Intro ~~~~ I have just returned from a family holiday in Reykjavik, the most northerly capital in the world. No one in our family is suited to the heat and we are not drawn by beach holidays. We were attracted by the reported beauty of the city and Iceland promised adventure with its volcanic...

“Northern Exposure”

Cool, Cultured, Spectacular natural surroundings

The National Museum has been closed all year, Very...

Reykjavik is probably the coolest city in the world - and not just because of its position as the most northerly capital, either. The geographical isolation of the city has given it a virtual license to be different, creative, quirky and ground breaking in many areas, a strangeness that is...

“Expensive but spectacular”

published 21/08/2001

nice looking, friendly people, cool as anything

VERY expensive

I went to Reykjavik for 5 nights in Autumn 1998 with my boyfriend and was well impressed. We had been inspired by seeing a programme about the making of Bjork's Homogenic album, which musically seems to sum up the atmosphere of Iceland. We got a package deal with flights and hotel (with...

Bland and expensive

The problem I find with travel reviews, in particular those you can find in guide books is that they rarely say anything negative about a place at all. Therefore you often have an idyllic view of somewhere before having gone there. Summing up Iceland's capital Reykjavik, I would probably call it...

“Capital of Cool”

published 23/02/2001

Unique and exciting city

It is very expensive

The area surrounding Reykjavik is one of the most astounding and beautiful locations in Europe. By touring the route known as the Golden Circle it is possible to see stunning scenery, active gysers and inactive volcanos. You can see the location where America and Europe are literally being pulled...

“Iceland. Fantastic!”

published 17/03/2007

Sight seeing, Warm welcome, Relaxing

Shopping

On deciding the destination for our trip we done the usual, search for the best flight, on the internet and, to our surprise, found BA to be the cheapest at the time. Flying from Gatwick the cost for 2 people, return, 4 nights was £161.40. Some people might have had bad experiences but I can...

“Icey Cold”

published 13/02/2003

magical

very expensive

Ever since i can remember i've always wanted to visit Iceland, even the name conjures up a magical sensation far far away from British life.And so it was decided upon a trip to Reykjavik in December. This may seem as a bad idea at this time at the peak of winter, but suprisingly at this time of...

“magic lights!”

published 14/04/2004

absolutely unique

expensive

I went to Reykjavik out of curiosity. I wanted to see what such an isolated and small capital city was like, I wanted know what it was like when it stayed dark until 11am and I wanted to know if it was true that baby puffin is a local delicacy! A drive from the airport to the city in January...

“Cool capital”

published 04/08/2000

Unusual destination, great scenery

Very expensive to eat and drink

Apparently it's very chic to visit Reykjavik these days, but it was simple curiosity that attracted me to a 3-night break in the city. The promise of geysers and waterfalls was enticing, and the deal was pretty cheap (arranged via the Guardian newspaper). The reality? Reykjavik is well worth a...

“GEYSERS!!”

published 18/10/2000

EASY TO SEE IT ALL

Reykjavik is a place to experience rather than just admire. It is a small city with fewer than 100,000 inhabitants. It has natural open spaces, traditional old buildings and exciting new ones. Virtually all this can be seen by walking. The central church in Reykjavik is the stone-built Domkirkjan...

“what a place!”

published 13/10/2004

scenery like nowhere else

the price of beer!

What started out as a cheap mini break turned into 5 days in Rekyavik but what the hell slap it on the credit card. Short flight from Glasgow on Icelandair - pleasant flight. Stayed at City Hotel which was walking distance from the city centre, quiet B&B type hotel, rooms were small but...

“Reykjavik”

published 05/10/2000

Great Value, wonderful winter feel

It can be cold!

You may think that Reyjavik, capital city of Iceland, is suitable only for a summer visit. Yet the city has a magic even in the winter months. Sure it snows a lots, but it is mostly a gentle, christmas snow that adds to the charm of an aalready beautiful city. Just imagine relaxing in warm...
