The shortest path of flights between N.Europe and NW.America is over the Arctic. Choosing Icelandair for such trips offers a midway stop for those wanting to experience the icelandic way of living, unique.

The capital Reykjavik is center of Icelands fish and production industries, relatively a very small city (pop. only ~100 000) and extreamly clean and organised.

Favourite spots:
- the small lake in the city centre - the back streets with cute and colourfull houses

What's really great:
- New Year Celebrations with friendly hosts. Great fireworks, had heard that the locals spend more on fireworks per capita than any other and that the profits go to charity.

- experiencing the seemingly endless nights, the sun appears only for a few hours and just above the horizon. I'd like to come here in summer for the opposite. -saunas

Sights:
Hallgrim's Church

- Kolaportio Market

- Fishing Harbour & Piers

- Botanical Garden


Accommodations:

Countless hotels and guest houses! I think there must be more beds for tourists than locals. I stayed at Hotel Loftleidir. When I woke up with a hangover, they offered an extra night stay (free) and arranged the flight changes.

Hangouts:
Small business, big hospitality

A lot, nearly every street has its local pub or more. Theres a sort-of restaurant-pub-club near the coach terminal.

Hi!

Although this is only a very short report I enjoyed reading it. Great tip about flying Icelandic Air and their stopover.....even better news about a hotel accommodating a hangover!! Nice pictures too.
