Think Reykjavík - Pure Energy! Visitors to Reykjavík always experience the pure energy at the heart of Iceland’s capital city -whether from the boiling thermal energy underground, the natural green energy within the city and around it, or the lively culture and fun-filled nightlife. The world’s northernmost capital is framed by the majestic Mount Esja, which keeps a watchful eye on the city, and the blue waters of Faxafloi Bay. On a sunny day, the mystical Snaefellsjokull glacier appears crystal-like on the western horizon, while mountainous moonscapes spread to the southeast. Reykjavík is a great place to visit, whether for some cultural nourishment, a spot of unbridled fun or to recharge your batteries. Think of the ideal city break and you’ll think of Reykjavík.
