Visitors to Iceland's capital city Reykjavik experience easily the energy whether from the geothermal energy or the lively culture and fun-filled nightlife. Think of the qualities of a great city should have; fun, space, clean air, nature, culture and Reykjavik have them in spades. The population of the capital area is about 200,000. The world's northernmost capital is bordered by Mt. Esja and a mountain ridge on one side and the blue waters of Faxafloi Bay on the other. On a sunny day, the Snaefellsjokull glacier appears on the western horizon. In the summer, you can sit by the harbour at midnight and watch the sun dip slightly below the horizon before it makes its way up again.
We recommend Capital-Inn Guesthouse if you stay in Reykjavik. See the website.
My friends, Pierre-Yves and Aline from France say: Guesthouse Hagi (approx. 25km south from Húsavik on road 853) is a pretty little farm. This place is like paradise. See the website.
