Destinations / Dejection agreeable / Reykjavik
The capital of Iceland is a small city with a vibrant nightlife, colourful wooden houses and a fascinating heritage dating back to the Vikings. Surrounded by the sea, the waterfront is perfect for strolling on a city break in Reykjavik, while Videy Island, which is steeped in history and culture, is a short boat trip away.
Geothermal bathing is almost a pre-requisite when you visit the land of fire and ice, where there are dozens of naturally heated pools and hot tubs in which to take a soak. Reykjavik holidays are for those who wish to spot a humpback whale or two, reach new highs on mount Esja (the view of the city is simply stunning) or sample authentic Nordic cuisine, which is heavy on seafood, organic lamb and wild game.
The coffee culture in Reykjavik is thriving and there are loads of trendy cafés to stop in at after visiting the iconic Hallgrimskirkja church, the huge open-air museum with live actors (Arbaejarsafn) or shopping for a popular lopapeysa (Icelandic knitted jumper). Don't forget to conserve some energy for the booming nightlife - the bars and clubs don't get going until midnight and stay open 'til dawn!
