Reykjavik City Guide

History

Compared to many European hotspots, Reykjavik is a tiny speck on the map. With a population of just 120,000 in central Reykjavik, it’s a miniscule city – but that’s not to say nothing goes on here. Once merely simple farmland, over the centuries the Icelandic capital has developed into a cosmopolitan city with a lot to shout about. Reykjavik is increasingly becoming one of the most happening cities in Europe, with a lively arts and culture scene, a range of culinary delights, and phenomenal naturals wonders both in the city centre and just outside it. In short, Reykjavik is the best European city you’ve never thought of visiting.

Popular Attractions

Reykjavik often attracts outdoor adventurers looking to explore Iceland’s many natural wonders, but there really is something for any kind of traveller in Reykjavik. For the active among us, hire a bike, ride a horse, jump in a helicopter, or take a jeep tour out into the wilderness of Iceland, outside Reykjavik’s centre. The city serves as a convenient base for those wanted to explore more of the country, and there’s ample opportunity available with tour companies to venture across the island.

Those looking for a more relaxing experience can find it in the city centre. Take a dip in one of Reykjavik’s many thermal pools, grab a bite to eat at the up-and-coming restaurants and café, serving exquisite Icelandic cuisine, and stroll around Reykjavik’s many museums and galleries. Iceland is at the height of cool right now, so you’ll find many exhibitions showcasing contemporary local and international artists, at spots such as 101 Gallery, The Living Art Museum, and Gallery Tukt, plus many more.

Food

Traditional Icelandic food could only really be described as rather archaic – it generally consists of lots of smoked meats and various pickled things, as you can imagine from the landscape and produce you might naturally find there. That said, Reykjavik’s dining scene is a plethora of tasty delights, cooked up by some award-winning chefs in some seriously trendy restaurants.

Transport

Situated between Europe and North America, its incredible easy to get to Iceland from both continents, and there are many layovers in Reykjavik for flying between the two, in fact. Keflavik is Iceland’s international airport, located 40km away from Reykjavik with easy transfers to the city by public transport. Frequent flights can easily be found from eastern Canada and the USA, and many areas of Europe.

Tips for Travellers

While there are many tours that run visitors outside of the city of Reykjavik to the wilder parts of Iceland, it’s also possible to drive the country by your own means. Consider hiring a car and cruising along one of Iceland’s epic driving routes. Don’t miss the Golden Circle!

For a busy day packed with sights and activities, pick up a Reykjavik Welcome Card, which gives you free admission to the pools, many museums, unlimited use of the buses, discounts at restaurants, and free internet. These can be bought for 24, 48, or 72 hours and will save you a lot of money.

Fun Facts

The word Reykjavik means ‘Smoky Bay’ or ‘Smokey Cove’, and was named so because of the steam rising from the land once people decided to settle there.
