The Best of Reykjavik

The Best of Reykjavik

Everything you need to know to make your trip to Reykjavik, Iceland, one you'll never forget, no matter what size your budget is.




Aug 19, 2014






About the Guidebook

In recent years, Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, has emerged as a hip alternative to major European powerhouses, such as Paris and Rome. Brimming with fashionista charm, Reykjavik, dotted with boutiques, cafés and colorful two-tone houses, is a city made for walking, and at sundown it transforms into a playground for indie artists who lace the night air with melody well into the wee hours. This guide is perfect for any travel style--luxury to budget--and will give you everything you need to experience the absolute best of Reykjavik.

Local Knowledge & Cool Perks

Contrary to its name and location—just outside of the Arctic Circle—Iceland boasts a temperate climate. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, summer temperatures are in the high 60s, while winter temperatures drop into the 20s. Additionally, the island boasts unique weather phenomenon, including periods of no sunlight in midwinter, which makes it an ideal place to view the Aurora Borealis.

In Reykjavik, the capital and largest city of Iceland, fashionistas and fisherman share the cobblestone streets outlined by vibrant two-tone houses fitted with corrugated aluminum. Like a cross between a 1940s Monterey, California. and a 21st century Paris, Reykjavik is charming blend of boutiques, cafés and pubs.

Want to know where to get the best authentic Icelandic cuisine? How about the best accommodation for your budget? Or, simple the absolute best spot to capture panoramas of Reykjavik? This guide will answer all those questions and so much more. Really, it's like having a best friend in the city, except you don't have to buy it dinner!
