Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, has an ever increasing number of visitors seeking a city break that is just a little different. Iceland is a beautiful country with a rugged, volcanic interior. Its capital spreads out along the shores of the Seltjarnarnes peninsula with the suburbs spreading from east to west. The old area of the city is noted for its brightly coloured roofs and walls and it is here you'll find the cathedral. Later developments give a panorama around the bay that looks like any other modern city. Reykjavik is a remarkably clean city and is said to be the safest in Europe. Most visitors come to enjoy the beauty of nature, soak in the thermal springs, visit the parks and gardens and to hopefully see the Northern Lights. This phenomenon gives an amazing light display as the gases show up as red, blue and green clouds drifting in waves across the sky.
It must be said that Reykjavik is a fairly expensive city and hotel accommodation is not cheap. If travelling on a budget, try a hostel, a guest house or a B&B. The hostels offers both single and double rooms and offer good amenities and will cost in the region of seventy-five pounds per night. When it comes to eating, you'll see a similar picture. It can be expensive but there are many cheaper alternatives with fast foods, pizzarias and simply cooked local fare. Iceland has a reputation as one of the best places for nightlife in the whole of Europe and Reykjavik is a city where you can party through the night.
The best time to visit Iceland is during the mid summer months when the sun barely sets. The converse is true in winter when there is only a little over four hours of sunshine. The temperatures, rather surprising, do not reach extremes hovering as they do around freezing in the winter and in the mid teens in the summer. Many regional airports have direct flights to Reykjavik. You can check on the Cheekytrip website to see if your local airport has city breaks to the city.
