What to do in Reykjavik
Reykjavik is a modern, à la mode city in close contact with its ancient and fairy talelike world. It comes as no surprise that the structure of the city is in tune with its surroundings. In Reykjavik there s an absence of skyscrapers and looming, huge buildings. Instead you’ll find woodbased architecture that usually functions with geothermal energy. Your tour can start from the oldest street of the capital, called Aðalstræti, which is also the point where the house numbering of the whole city begins. Popular tales claim that the legendary Viking king Ingólfur Arnarson founded the city on this street in the house at number 10, where you can find Island’s oldest house. Reykjavik has proved to be an important cultural centre in Europe. There are many charming places of great historical value. For instance, the Þjóðminjasafn, the National Museum, or churches curiously built like the Hallgrimskirkja, are considered a symbol of the city and of Iceland in general. This church is lavish and striking, with its enormous and magnificent 5275pipes organ. However, do not miss its elevator, which will lift you all the way to the summit of the church’s tower, at 75 meters from groundlevel, making it a perfect spot for viewing the city skyline. Afterwards, why not pop over to feedbread to the ducks of Tjörnin, a small lake that in spring and summer is known as “the biggest bread soup in the world” and in winter freezes over to become an enchanting ice rink. If you love shopping, finally, take a look at Laugavegur, the most crowded and illustrious shopping street in the country. While it is now a very packed place, in the past it was the path for washerwomen going to and returning from water sources.

Taking a bath in the “Blue Lagoon” geothermal spa
Driving near Reykjavik
One of the most interesting and diffused facilities in Iceland are pools and spa, all of them warmed by geothermal energy. Near Reykjavík there are several fine ones. With your rental car you can, for instance, easily reach Laugardalslaug, arguably Iceland’s biggest and nicest spa. Forty minutes away by car you’ll find the geothermal baths of the widelyknown Blue Lagoon, a spa majestically surrounded by black, cold lava. If you are looking for some typical Icelandic natural landscape, visit Snaefellsnes, a peninsula that takes its name after an enormous volcanoglacier and boasts unique natural phenomena sidebyside with outstanding basalt columns and a beautiful coastline. Going on to the final end of the peninsula, you can walk in Iceland’s most recent national park and finally reach some beautiful fishing villages, in particular the stunningStykkishólmur.
