Reykjavík & Reykjanes

Reykjavík and the Reykjanes Peninsula

The capital city of Iceland has many landmarks and museums to explore and makes a great base to visit local attractions such as the Blue Lagoon and the Golden Circle tour. You can enjoy excursions like whale watching and northern lights tours which depart from the capital and it is a fantastic place to try traditional Icelandic cuisine and to sample the local culture. Reykjanes Peninsula, just next to Reykjavik, is a UNESCO Global Geopark, part of the European and Global Geopark network and the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level.
