Capital Region

Iceland’s capital city of Reykjavík — the northernmost capital in the world — is the cultural hub of the country....

The capital region is densely populated and is home to more than 60% of the country’s population. With its compact city center full of cute shops, good restaurants, and colorful buildings, Reykjavík is very walkable and easy to get around. If you’re looking for museums or interesting architecture, you are sure to find it in Reykjavík. It’s hard to miss the imposing, rugged tower of Hallgrímskirkja church, or the colorful glass and steel structure of the Harpa concert hall. Because of the small size of the country, it’s easy to venture out to other areas with a homebase of Reykjavík. A young and vibrant city, there is plenty to explore in this gateway city to the land of fire and ice.
