REYKJAVIK

ESPAÑOL

  • I was here: I would swear it was 3 nights and 2 days (although according to my photos it was 3 days), plus half a day for the Blue Lagoon.
  • Recommended number of days: one for the city and half for the Blue Lagoon.
  • My score: 3/5.

Reykjavik is the only true city in Iceland, where more than a third of the country’s inhabitants live. Located in the region with the most clement climate of the island, its expansion continues at the expense of the metropolitan area, since Reykjavík as such can not continue to grow due to having the sea to the northwest, the mountains to the southeast and being bordering with the towns of Kopavogur, Gardavaer and Hafnarfjördur to the southwest and Mosfellsbaer to the northeast. None of these four dormitory towns interests us, but the capital. With parks, squares, pedestrian streets full of restaurants and shops and some notable buildings in terms of modern architecture, Icelanders, sociable people and those who like to enjoy above all else, have something to be proud of. Its beauty is not exactly that of Prague, but it is a city more pleasant and sophisticated than most can imagine. It is also close enough to some of the best places in the country to go on a day trip, especially the Golden Circle (Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir) and one of the most beautiful and famous open-air spas in the world, the Blue Lagoon.
