Reykjavik Travel Guide

Why? With its many unique attractions, Iceland has become the new 'in' destination, so no wonder more and more visitors are flocking to holiday in Reykjavik, its capital city. Apart from crisp, clean air and natural hot springs, Reykjavik offers a notoriously raucous nightlife scene and some enjoyable sightseeing in its old city centre. The main reason most travel to Reykjavik, however, is to take excursions out of the city to natural hot attractions like the Blue Lagoon and Geysir.
When? Despite experiencing snowy, cold and dark winters, Reykjavik can be said to be a year-round destination. The warm summer months when the sun barely sets are the best time to travel to Reykjavik, but an increasing number of visitors are opting to holiday in warm-hearted Reykjavik for the New Year festivities, snow sports and the novelty of swimming in hot springs. If you want to catch the spectacle of the northern lights travel to Reykjavik between September and March and hope for a clear, cold night.
Who for? A holiday in Reykjavik is a memorable and delightful experience for anyone and everyone who enjoys spending time in a scenic, welcoming city and marvelling at nature's wonders.
