About Reykjavik

Reykjavik, on the coast of Iceland, is the country's capital and largest city. Known for its endless summer days and long winter nights, Reykjavik teems with life. The city’s vibrant arts and music scenes are always showcasing something new. Set astride the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Reykjavik’s spirit swells from its deep reservoirs of geothermal energy. Spend some time down by the harbor where you can enjoy the freshest North Atlantic seafood catches, then take in an art gallery or two before retiring to one of the city’s famous hot springs. From there you can enjoy splendid views of the Northern Lights. Iceland’s Viking history is ever-present and the city is a fantastic place for families with children. Unspoiled nature, majestic beauty, and friendly residents; truly, Reykjavik is an incredible destination.

The Icelandic language of Reykjavik means “smoke city”. It is said that when people came to settle in the 9th century, they saw the white smoke rising from the shore and mistakenly thought that the water vapor in the hot spring was smoke. So got its name. Because geothermal resources are abundant here and geothermal energy supplies energy to the city's industry, boilers and chimneys are not visible here. The sky here is blue and the city is neat and clean with almost no pollution, so it is called the “smoke-free city”.
