Whale Watching
Looking for Whales

Reykjavik is the largest city and the capital of the volcanic island. At first glance, Iceland doesn’t seem very accessible, but I was pleasantly surprised thanks in part by Iceland Unlimited  Tours.  I highly recommend them for anyone that wants to see parts of Iceland that you didn’t seem possible (ATV off road) and wish to see the beautiful northern lights.

Airport


 

Keflavik is a nice airport, very easy to maneuver and not too big. Beware the airport is about 30 minutes from Reykjavik, so prepare t book a taxi or van in advance.
