All Around Reykjavik
Flights to Reykjavik arrive at Keflavik Airport, 31 miles from Reykjavik's city center. Rent a car in Reykjavik so that you can see more of what the city and its surroundings have to offer. For example, Hallgrimskirkja is a Lutheran church that is a famous feature of Reykjavik's skyline. An elevator whisks you up a 246-foot steeple for amazing panoramic views of the city below. Inside this national treasure, revel in the sight of the massive organ that features 72 stops and 5,275 pipes. From May to August, the imported sand at Nautholsvik Thermal Beach is a popular destination. The waters are warmed by runoff from the city's unique geothermal heating system. At the Reykjavik Zoo, the emphasis is on indigenous animals rather than imported species, so you'll see animals like reindeer, arctic fox, and mink. The kids can take pony rides and even pet crabs. After a memorable day of sightseeing, settle down at one of Reykjavik's fine dining establishments for some fresh Arctic Salmon or mouth-watering lobster. Or, add liberal amounts of fried onions and mustard to a pylsur, the ever-popular lamb hot dog.
