Visit the unique Reykjavik | Iceland

Watching the lunar lava formations on the way from the airport, you will realize that there is no other capital like Reykjavik. And when suddenly emerge the deep blue waters of the Faxafloi gulf and the colorful rooftops of downtown, you will no doubt await days and nights filled with tension. In the tiny city dock cafes, you will see anxious geeks with their laptop, while in the many geothermal pools, children and adults enjoy the water.

Tourists on the other side give appointments for shopping on Laugavegur, before they take off to gaze at whales. From here start some of the most popular day trips in the country, from the semicircular waterfall Gullfoss to the rugged valley of the god Thor.

The museums of the capital house from modern visual art to the achievements of the Vikings, while the historic center alternative cafes and gourmet restaurants serve pasta with fresh seafood. Weekday music reverberate everywhere, while the weekend by the entire youth center begins for the standard runtur, a heady pass through the bars. Nature would never dance in greater harmony with the modern spirit in this idiosyncratic capital of the North.

Between May and August is the best time to visit, since the ice remaining for months has every intention to literally block your way there.
