Iceland is a stunning display of opposites -- volcanic fire and glacial ice, hauntingly empty landscapes and bustling city streets. In this most northern country in Europe, the city of Reykjavik draws travelers intent on enjoying its unique attractions, unusual foods, and warm, friendly people.
International flights to Reykjavik land at Keflavík International Airport, about an hour's drive from the city. The city's second airport, Reykjavík Airport, is purely for domestic plane travel. Most visitors prefer to stay closer to the city, where all of the action is.
Founded by Vikings a thousand years ago, the city is an interesting mix of old and new. The architecture of the city center is an eclectic mix well worth enjoying by foot on a tour of the area. There are also plentiful parks, gardens, and museums to celebrate all that is uniquely Icelandic. Bars and pubs draw the locals and are a good place to meet and make new friends.
The country's geothermal activity provides the popular sport of bathing in its mineral-rich waters. These are dotted around the countryside, many of them, such as Laugardalslaug, are right in the city. Reykjavik is also fortuitously positioned to enjoy whale watching and there are many boat tours offering a glimpse of a range of fascinating wildlife, including Iceland's famous puffins.
