What To Do in Reykjavik

Reykjavik is sometimes called the smallest large capital of the world. With less than 200 thousand inhabitants, it is nevertheless a bustling city with (almost) everything a large capital has to offer - and more.

Recommendations

Reykjavik is a small city so you really only need a couple of days to see the entire city, however one could easily spend weeks there enjoying everything the city has to offer in terms of events, local culture, museums, restaurant scene and its crazy nighlife on weekends. A few of many things not to miss are: Stroll around downtown and the old harbor area, visit to the iconic Harpa Music and Conference Hall and visit one of the local swimming pools, loved by locals.
