Complete guide to Iceland

Overview

Reykjavik is one of the most surprising hidden gems in Europe. Sure, everyone and their brother is coming right now to Iceland to see the natural beauty dripping from every corner of this little island, but if you skip Reykjavik, you risk missing out on one of the best places to visit for food, music, and art in Europe. More than just a jumping point for the rest of the country, Reykjavik is a city that punches above it’s weight class, beckoning you to dive in and stay a while...

TRAVEL TIPS: The airport is about 45 minutes from downtown Reykjavik, and the best way to get to the city is to take the Flybus for about $30.

Eating out can be crazy expensive, often about $20 for a fairly casual entree. Even fast food at places like Subway or Domino’s can run you $15+ for a meal. But the good news is groceries at Bonus or Kronan are hardly more expensive than the rest of the U.S. or Europe, so keep your fridge stocked and save your money for dinners out.

Sunset Ride in Reykjavik

Just taking the ol’ WOW city cruisers out for a little sunset spin, from the Hallgrimskirkja Church downtown, through Hljómskálagarður Park and down past the University to Nautholsvik Beach, it was a fine way to spend an afternoon. Actually it was around midnight when we shot this. Land of eternal magic hour.
