Experience a European city destination like no other with a holiday or break to the incredible Icelandic capital of Reykjavik. A city small in size but brimming with exciting opportunities to discover an engaging enclave or to venture further afield, Reykjavik is endlessly charming.

From Reykjavik you have the perfect opportunity to discover Iceland’s famously lunar-like glacial landscapes, the spectacular Northern Lights, traverse the Golden Circle and venture across the Blue Lagoon. Even so, be sure to remain in the city long enough to embrace its cosy café culture, devour some of the freshest local produce in some of Europe’s most unusual restaurants and take advantage of a bustling nightlife that has attracted revellers from around the world to sample its delights.
