Reykjavik is the first port of call for any visitor to the country. Despite its small size, this is a culturally-aware, creative, modern city that has a large musical community as well as top-class restaurants, bars and entertainment. There is impressive modern architecture: Hallgrimskirkja is a thoroughly modern cathedral with a truly bold design, and The Harp is a meeting and concert hall that is equally audacious. Intrepid visitors will also be keen to explore the otherworldly interior of Iceland, traversing the Þingvellir and Vatnajökull National Parks to see glaciers, hot springs and the earth literally tearing itself apart!
Typical food and drink in Iceland
Icelandic cuisine has rapidly evolved from its subsistence roots, but traditional delicacies might still surprise you a little. Preserved and smoked fish and meat abound, and the locals may attempt to persuade you to try the speciality, rotten shark – beware! But fear not, thoroughly modern cuisine is also available in the hip restaurants of Reykjavik.
