Last minute Reykjavik city break

Located in the southwest of Iceland, Reykjavíc, the worlds most northern capital, combines modern design with quirky, colourful buildings, captivating art, wild nightlife and diverse culinary experiences.

Surprisingly cosmopolitan given its size, you’d be forgiven for thinking it a town rather than a city, but what it lacks compared with its more southernly neighbours, it more than makes up for with its array of quaint cafes that transform into high-end restaurants at night, its epic music scene and wide array of festivals.

Looking to indulge in its culture, see first hand the original Viking longhouses of its Settlement Exhibition, or take in its rich history at the National Museum. If its art you’re interested in, galleries pop up all over the place, showcasing both internationally recognised artists as well as many homegrown talents.

With average temperatures ranging from below freezing in winter to the mid-teens in the summer, and a record high of just 25, expect to wrap up warm when you visit.

Although Reykjavík has its own airport, the largest is Keflavík International (KEF) and the only international option. Its about 50km southwest of the city, and though Iceland has no public railway, the bus system is the best option second to hiring a car.

Of course, you can’t head to Iceland without planning a trip out to see the famous Northern Lights, just another reason to book your next trip now.
