    Capital of Iceland


    Reykjavik, on the coast of Iceland, is the country's capital and largest city. It's home to the National and Saga museums, tracing Iceland’s Viking history. The striking concrete Hallgrimskirkja church and rotating Perlan glass dome offer sweeping views of the sea and nearby hills. Exemplifying the island’s volcanic activity is the geothermal Blue Lagoon spa, near the village of Grindavik.

    Reykjavik is well known for the late-night clubs and bars in its compact center. The regenerated area around the Old Harbour has a concert hall, souvenir shops and views of Mt. Esja. Shopping options include Downtown Laugavegur’s boutiques and the Kolaportid weekend flea market. A popular day trip, the “Golden Circle” tour takes in Gullfoss Waterfall, spouting geysers and Thingvellir National Park. In the darker months, between autumn and spring, rural areas are popular places to spot the Northern Lights atmospheric phenomenon.
