Easter holidays in Reykjavik – Iceland

Reykjavik is clean, crisp and refreshingly different. It is a place of many facets: the cosy timber dwellings of its historic heart are clustered around the city’s centre piece – a lake and bird sanctuary. In the bustling streets surrounding the cathedral and Parliament, Reykjavik’s cafés radiate inviting warmth and an aroma of freshly brewed coffee – the national drink. This compact city is easy to explore and almost everyone speaks English so directions are simple to follow.

A round trip of the Golden Circle

The Golden Circle is the name given to a 190 mile (300 kilometer)circular route which emcompasses many of Iceland’s most famous landmarks. The Golden Circle can easily be completed in one day, either by renting a car or going as part of a group (tours depart every day from Reykjavik). There are also hotels and campsites en route for people who wish to take longer.

Reykjavik is the place to shop till you drop

The range of shopping available in Reykjavik is extensive and many inexpensive Icelandic souvenirs will be sure to end up in the suitcases of tourists. Whether you are looking for designer clothing or a hand-knitted Icelandic woollen sweater, original art work or simply a T-shirt, Reykjavik will provide shoppers with plenty of choice and price brackets.

And when the nights falls

get into the local spirit with a “runtur” (Icelandic pub crawl)! Reykjavik will then reveal her other side that is both dynamic and hip! An extremely endearing city, spend at least two or three days there!

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the layout of your site?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little
    more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.

    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
