It's the most northern capital and a place famous for its mystic inhabitants - may it be Björk or the legendary elves and trolls.
Iceland is an unique and almost unreal place, shaped by extreme forces of nature, it has become the number one travel destination for outdoor travelers. Reykjavic is home to 37 percent of Icelands population and it's name descends from the words "smoke bay" which was an ancient name for the region due to its hot springs. Since the first settlers built their first houses in 870, Reykjavic has seen good and bad times but never lost its sense of humor and irony as proven by the election victory of the "fun party" in 2010. Singer Björk might be Reykjavics most famous resident but no matter where you connect with the locals you will be pleasantly surprised by their warm-heartedness. Join the locals at one of the cosy bars where the long winternights are pleasantly spent.
