It is the contrasts that make Reykjavik so enticing. Constant daylight during the summer, constant darkness in the winter; a treasured Viking past with locals always looking to the future; a city with a sometimes village feel that exudes modern city trappings.

Between the middle of May and July, Reykjavik enjoys round-the-clock daylight and all the inhabitants go a little scatty! Having survived the long, harsh winter it is a time to socialise...all night. This is especially true on Fridays and Saturdays with the runtur, basically a pub crawl that lasts all night. If you are not up to it, then do not forget your ear plugs or eye shades if you want some sleep!
Other delights to indulge in during the long hours of sunlight include a visit to Hallgrimskirkja and its 75m tower that offers stunning views of the landscape. Or how about a horse ride under the midnight sun or a dip in one of the geothermal pools? Then there might just be time to fit in a visit to the Volcano Show or go puffin or whale watching.
