Reykjavik is Iceland's main seaport, also the country's capital city and centre of cod-fishing industry. The city has population around 124,000.

Port Reykjavik (Iceland) cruise port

In 874 the Vikings established the first permanent settlement in Reykjavik. The community was chartered in 1786, and in 1843 became the seat of parliament. Reykjavik became Iceland's capital in 1918, as well as the world's northernmost metropolis. the city is on Faxa Bay, surrounded by mountains and provides easy access to fishing and skiing.

Reykjavik claims that it's "the cleanest city on earth". It has 50+ art galleries and museums, as well as 2 theatre companies and a symphony orchestra. The city's landmarks include Althing (parliament building) and Hallgrímskirkja (Hallgrímur Church/Lutheran cathedral, 1945-opened modern building).

From Reykjavik, tourists can visit the National Park on the shores of the largest lake in Iceland, with wildflowers and abundant bird life. Here too is the "Golden Falls", Gullfoss, a double cascade in Hvita River, measuring 105 feet high and dropping in 2 stages into a mile-long gorge. Nearby is regularly spouting Geysir, a thermal spring from which all hot springs have taken their name. Out on Reykjanes Peninsula, don't miss the mud pools and stem vents of Krisuvik and the Blue Lagoon, where you can bathe in mineral-rich waters.

Reykjavík Airport (Iceland's second-largest - after Keflavík Airport) is inside the city and south of downtown. It serves mainly domestic flights, asl well as flights to Greenland and Faroe Islands. Reykjavík Airport was built during WW2 (1939-45) by the British occupation force on the outskirts of the then smaller city. Since 1962, there's been controversy regarding the airport's location, since it takes up valuable space in the city's central part.

Reykjavík has 2 seaports. The old harbour (close to downtown) is used mainly by cruise ships and fishing boats. Sundahofn (in the eastern part) is Iceland's biggest cargo port. The country has no public railways as it is sparsely populated. However, the locomotives that were used to build the docks are still on display.
