reykjavik iceland

Reykjavik may be the largest city in Iceland but it is also the smallest capital city in Europe. The atmosphere is more like that of a small and friendly town.

Reykjavik is located on Iceland's south west coast and is home to around 120,000 - almost half the island's population.

Lava fields, geysers, waterfalls and glaciers are only a short drive away, so Reykjavik is a great base for exploring the natural wonders of the south of the island.

Our recommended places to stay in Reykjavik are:

Visitors to Iceland's capital city love its gourmet restaurants and the shopping opportunities on Laugavegur, the city's main street.  With over 100 bars and nightclubs, the city is well known for its bustling nightlife.

Weather & Seasons

With its Nordic climate, the driest months of the year in Iceland are May, June and July. Mid-June to August is high season, but most highland tours don’t operate until July because of snow. At other times, many tourist facilities outside Reykjavík are closed. For a chance to see the Northern Lights travel between December and April and for whale-watching, the spring and summer are best.
