Reykjavik

The capital never sleeps – whatever the time of year. City and cosy charm, nightlife and wellness – Reykjavik is Iceland’s highlight.

Experiences in Reykjavik

Experience the attractions of hot springs, steaming geysers and dormant volcanoes. Even dogsled trips are available in the region. If you have more time, we recommend a whale safari and a ride on horseback in the fantastic scenery on the wonderful Icelandic horses.

 

Summer in Reykjavik is lively and unique. The sun hangs in the sky more or less 24 hours a day, and the local population enjoy the summer light to the full. Trendy haunts are open 24-7, and if you’re not sleeping during the day, there are museums to suit all tastes.

 

Health resorts, wellness treatments and geothermal springs are other defining characteristics of the capital. The Blue lagoon is a balm for body and soul with its mineral salts and algae.

Out into the world

Reykjavik is quite unique. Enjoy a couple of relaxing days before continuing your journey elsewhere in the world. Or fly directly with Air Greenland from Nuuk to Keflavik International Airport. From here the gateways are open to the USA, Asia and Europe.
