Reykjavik (Iceland)

Community Quote

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. ... Read review

The world's northernmost capital Review with images

AdvantagesUnusual but welcoming and safe holiday destination

DisadvantagesSlightly expensive

"...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. Greater Reykjavik has a population of just over 200,000 people, which is two thirds of the population of the country as a whole. A small island to the north west of Britain, it does tend to get overlooked when concentrating on mainland Europe, but from ..." Read review

Reykjavik: Cold Weather and Hot Springs

AdvantagesBeatiful, crowd-free, unspoiled

DisadvantagesCold (just wrap up warm) and expensive

"...edge of the Arctic Circle, Reykjavik sits on the south west coast of Iceland, oh so many miles north of Scotland in the north Atlantic Ocean. It is rapidly increasing in size, mostly from people migrating here from other parts of the country. Iceland is very sparsely populated, two thirds of a total of only 300,000 Icelanders live in the Reykjavik area. This was one of the most striking aspects of our visit to me, the fact that there are just so few ..." Read review

Northern Exposure

AdvantagesCool, Cultured, Spectacular natural surroundings

DisadvantagesThe National Museum has been closed all year, Very expensive

"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 mirrored perfectly in the surreal natural beauty of the surrounding countryside. But before I plunge onwards with my review, let me just make it clear where I am ..." Read review

Expensive but spectacular

Advantagesnice looking, friendly people, cool as anything

DisadvantagesVERY 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 breakfast) for about £500 each, which was fairly cheap. We stayed at Hotel Reykjavik (the smaller, second branch) which was clean, friendly, comfortable, nice big ..." Read review

Capital of Cool

AdvantagesUnique and exciting city

DisadvantagesIt 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 apart and the land is sinking by several centimetres a year as a result. You can visit fantastic waterfalls where the water flows directly from a distant ..." Read review
