The world's northernmost capital city is also the hippest. Such sophistication in a city right on nature's doorstep is what makes Reykjavík so popular.

Reykjavík and Iceland attract more visitors every year; isn´t it time to discover what the fuss is all about?

Land of fire and ice

Our flights to Reykjavík, Iceland will take you to a truly different place. Lying directly between Europe and North America, not much more than a bunch of volcanic cliffs topped with glaciers, volcanoes and black stone deserts, Iceland's culture has been influenced by both America and Europe.

While travel to Iceland is most popular during the summer months, other seasons are becoming increasingly popular. Come to Iceland in winter to experience something truly magical.

There's a special feel to Reykjavík, a blend of both city and village. Even though the combined population of the greater Reykjavík area is just over 180.000 people, Icelanders think on a far bigger scale and it shows.

Enjoying Reykjavik

A relaxing break in Iceland is what you need if the time is ripe for a change of pace. You hardly need to leave Reykjavík for a day of deep sea fishing, salmon angling, whale watching, high quality bird watching and an array of other high adventure activities. There is also the amazing food, as local chefs blend the outstanding seafood and lamb with international cooking styles, giving Icelandic restaurants a unique style. You should consider staying in Reykjavík for a few days and then visit to the countryside which is often described as "hauntingly beautiful".
