Reykjavik port information

Reykjavik is the capital of Iceland and although one of the world´s smallest capital cities, it is home to almost half of Iceland´s population.  If you are lucky enough to get an overnight here, or if you come back on a second visit, you will get a chance to explore the city which has much to offer.  Mosaics, murals and sculptures are found throughout the oldest part of the town where brightly coloured houses with tin roofs are watched over by the towering Hallgrimskirkja Church.

Most of the excursions will include a bit of coach based sightseeing either at the start or end of the tour, but they concentrate on the Golden Circle which has all the famous places of interest (vast lava fields, mid-atlantic rift, spouting geysers, bubbling mud and lava pools, crashing waterfalls, or alternatively the famous geothermal Blue Lagoon.

Part old Norse, part modern city, it has a quirky character of its own.  It has some fine archticture and used to have a very fine mayor, Jón Gnarr.
