Reykjavik may be the largest city in Iceland but it is also the smallest capital city in Europe. The atmosphere is more like that of a small and friendly town. Visitors to Reykjavik will love its gourmet restaurants and the shopping opportunities on Laugavegur, the city's main street. Reykjavik is also home to more than 100 bars and nightclubs, so it is well known for its bustling nightlife.
Lava fields, geysers, waterfalls and glaciers are only a short drive away, so Reykjavik is a great base for exploring the natural wonders of the south of the island.
