Iceland is quickly being added to bucket lists worldwide. The small country of under 400,000 inhabitants is overflowing with natural wonders. From waterfalls to glaciers and lava rocks to flower fields… Iceland has something for every adventurous traveler. Reykjavik, the capital city, provides an unmistakeable energy.
Surrounded by the countries two largest airports, Reykjavik Airport and Keflavik International Airport, Reykjavik is an up-and-coming hub with a small town feel. Wander the streets of this small city and you will find pastel painted shops, underground restaurants, and local bands playing in pubs.
Reykjavik provides easy access to many of Iceland’s best attractions, while creating a center for like-minded travelers. In a city with some of the worlds most beautiful women and entertainingly hipster men, it is easy to spend hours people-watching from a café balcony.
While it may be tempting to only use Reykjavik as a base for traveling elsewhere in Iceland, it is a city that deserves attention.
