Green Reykjavik

Reykjavik is surrounded and dominated by a range of majestic mountains to the east and divided by one of the country's best salmon rivers. .

Reykjavík is a tempting attraction for anyone who loves to combine a lively city experience with the wholesome sights and sounds of nature.


Green areas & country parks

Although Reykjavík is a metropolis and capital in every sense, the city has been carefully developed and crafted around a number of easily accessible recreational areas and country parks. Here nature is not only protected but sustained, extended and encouraged to thrive.

The pristine air or pure drinking water, or perhaps it's the proximity of all those extraordinary natural wonders, which are the reason for the Icelandic`s being considered as the friendliest nation in the world.


Seasonally special lights

The unending Midnight Sun daylight of summertime or the spectacular Northern Lights during the winter combined with the glaciers and volcanoes. Whatever is it, one thing’s for sure, once you’ve been introduced, it’s hard to let go or say goodbye.


Perfect maintained routes

Well-maintained footpaths and cycling routes, threading through some of the city's numerous parks and nature reserves, visitors to Reykjavík won't have to travel far to make a quick break from city life and explore the wilds of Reykjavík.
