WHAT WE LOVE

The capital, and largest city in Iceland, Reykjavik has made a name for itself because of its natural wonders and unique climate. While it may not be the most populous of cities, Reykjavik is still full of excitement, and a wild nightlife scene to boot – or as locals call it, "jammith"! Make sure to try their locally produced beer and Icelandic schnapps, and experience it for yourself. A popular day trip in Reykjavik is the Golden Circle tour consisting of famous spots like the Kerid Crater, Geysir geothermal area, Strokkur, Gullfoss, Thingvellir National Park and more. Reykjavik is also the starting point for many tours on a hunt to see the ever-so-elusive Northern Lights.
