Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, captivates visitors with its charming, brightly colored coastal houses, one-of-a-kind shops, and constant reminders of the nation's Viking heritage. Reykjavik is a calm, quirky, historic, and artistic city with barely 215,000 inhabitants. Although there are a ton of things to do in the city itself, its position allows for quick day excursions to several must-see locations. Public warm baths and the distinctive northern lights are just part of the scene, so you can incorporate them into your itinerary whenever you have time, regardless of how you want to spend your time in Reykjavik.
Reykjavik is located on Iceland's southwest coast, a subarctic island east of Greenland. The country lies nearly halfway between North America and Europe, while the city itself is roughly halfway between New York and Moscow. Because of its geographical location, the city is ideal for a weekend getaway for visitors from both sides of the Atlantic.
