What is Reykjavík like?
Over half of Iceland’s population lives in its capital city of Reykjavík. The city is modern, clean, friendly, and easy to walk. Despite being the capital of Iceland, there are no skyscrapers in the city. The weekend boasts a plethora of nighttime activities, but the week is generally quiet.
What is there to do outside of the city of Reykjavík?
The southern coast of Iceland is very sunny and breezy, making it the ideal spot for outdoor activities and adventures. Fly fishing, rafting, and glacier hiking are all possible. You can take a 4-wheeling Jeep over lava fields or horseback ride on the special-gated little Icelandic horse as well.
Is English widely spoken in Iceland?
All Icelanders are required to speak Icelandic, Danish, English, and one other choice of a language. Iceland even boasts a 99.9% literacy rate and university education is free except for books. Because of their supreme focus on education and literacy, English is extremely widely spoken in this country.
