Reykjavik Travel Information

The capital of Iceland, Reykjavik is the world’s northernmost capital city, being not too far short of the Arctic Circle. With such a location the climate is understandably cold for the majority of the year, and the winter will see no more than 4 hours of daylight whilst the summers can be like the middle of the day for almost 24 hours. This is caused by the angle of the sun and the cities location on the globe. It is a fascinating thing to experience and something that makes a visit to Reykjavik such an amazing experience.
