Reykjavik in detail

Reykjavik's foundation is as romantic and beguiling as its location, set on the fringe of the Atlantic Ocean, surrounded by a lunar volcanic netherworld, with the shadowy hulk of Mount Esja in the background.

Although it still feels like a provincial town, with its low buildings and brightly painted houses, Greater Reykjavik (including the Old Town, harbour and six surrounding municipalities) is home to three out of five Icelanders.

For the cruise passenger, there are bountiful cultural attractions, countless cafes, geothermal swimming baths and myriad day trip opportunities into the vast and wild landscape around the relatively small Icelandic capital.
