The quirky little city is not just full of crooked bankers and politicians, the architecture is a blast from Denmark of the past. There are more Icelandic books than Icelanders! you can spend hours browsing the bookstores of this highly literate nation.

Iceland fact:80% of the population of Iceland live in the capital area.

There are some beauty spots in the Reykjavik area. If you can escape from the hot dogs and puffin gift stores, there are beauty spots to be found in the lowest and highest parts of Reykjavik. See our location guide for Reykjavik.
