In the northernmost capital in the world, Reykjavik, a heart-stopping Nordic experience awaits.
Reykjavik is Iceland’s cultural center and the first permanent settlement on the island. When wandering on its atmospheric streets, you will come across inspiring scenes of art and culture. A breathtaking landscape hovers in the backdrop of the city. Reykjavik exceeds expectations when it comes to trendiness, featuring vibrant sociable cafes and top-notch restaurants. With one face turned towards the world and the other to the natural state of Iceland, it provides the perfect setting for traveling.
Reykjavik is the embodiment of Nordic minimalism, washed in red, blue, and yellow buildings. They bring life to this otherwise pale-looking sprawl. At its heart, Old Reykjavik lures visitors into a magnetic field bolstered by historic abodes. Stroll by Lake Tjörnin in the afternoon and have some local delicacies with Icelandic-style strong coffee. Enjoy the crisp air before you dive into the fascinating museums.
Eccentric collections offer excitement in versatile museums. Art is most happening in the contemporary galleries scattered around the city. The Settlement Exhibition is arguably the centerpiece of this bundle of sophistication. It takes visitors back to the Viking age in its 10th-century ruins. A few blocks away, HallGrímskirkja Church soars to the stormy Icelandic sky. The structure looks like it came straight out of a Lord of the Rings setting. A mesmerizing representative of Icelandic spirit, it is the largest church in the country.
