Reykjavík is the capital of Iceland. It is the smallest capital city in Europe and despite its small size it has everything a “propper” capital city should have, vivid night live, museums, great restaurants, lively music scene, theaters, galleries and so much more.
One of the things that make Reykjavík special is its many outdoors geothermal swimming pools. If you want to meet the locals in their natural surroundings the pool is the place to go, because the pool is where we go to meet our friends, spend time with the family, talk about politics and this also a great place for a first date. The abundance of geothermal water in Reykjavík and vicinity makes this possible for us to enjoy all year round.
We recommend the Reykjavík City Card if you are going to spend some time Reykjavík. The Card gives you free admission to swimming pools and museums, to name a few.
If you want to go a bit out of the city center we urge you to do it by foot, because there are some great walking and running paths all around town.
