Reykjavik Pocket Guide takes you straight to the heart of this increasingly popular city destination. Reykjavik highlights include: 101 Reykjavik, the oldest, coolest part of town, a Mecca for unique designer clothes; the hilltop church, Hallgrimskirkja with an awesome 5000 pipes organ; geothermal greats, free heat and hot water to every home in the city from the huge Perlan reservoir tanks; the Blue Lagoon, steam vents and geysers, volcanoes and whale watching, Icelandic elves alive in Ellioaar Valley! Viking tales are told at the Saga Museum from within the striking modern glass structure; the Pearl, the Iceland Airwaves music festival 20-24 October and the Winter Lights Festival 17-20 February; outdoor pursuits such as kayaking, fishing and pony trekking; and fresh fish and thrillingly strange cuisine. Direct flights take about 3 hours from Glasgow, Heathrow, and Stansted.
The city is a base for longer trips/tours taking in the whole of Iceland. This city accommodates 50.000 UK visitors
