Visit the world's northernmost capital city - Reykjavik! Here, a distinct culture and way of life has developed because of the rugged nature that characterizes Iceland. Right on the border of the Arctic Circle, Iceland is full of breathtaking natural landscapes of fjords, glaciers, geysers, and more. With just over 100,000 people, the coastal town of Rekjavik is Iceland's biggest city, where you can explore the museums or talk with the friendly people to learn more about their culture and the fascinating viking history that was responsible for establishing the first communities in Iceland.
