Fire and ice

Iceland's lively and modern capital Reykjavik offers an interesting contrast in the land of desolate moonscapes, roiling seas and snow-capped mountains.

With deep Norse roots reaching back a thousand years, a visit to the National Museum of Iceland is a must. To better understand Reykjavik’s connection to the sea, pay a visit to the Víkin Maritime Museum. Take some time to explore the beautiful Old Town with its colourful houses and winding streets, too. Head to the Kolaportið Flea Market on a Saturday or Sunday to browse Icelandic wares and taste the various delicacies on offer, from fresh fish to rotten shark! At the end of the day the main entertainment street of Laugavegur awaits, lined with bars, cafes and restaurants.

Within a short daytrip are many spectacular sights; Thingvellir National Park, the seat of the old Icelandic government, forms part of the so-called Golden Circle route, which also includes the roaring Gullfoss falls, the geothermally-active Haukadalur valley and the world-famous Geysir geyser. The cold North-Atlantic seas are home to travelling pods of whales, which makes whale-watching a popular activity. Finally, to relax, make a visit to the Blue Lagoon, a renowned thermal area fed by waste heat from a geothermal powerplant.
