Reykjavik and its surrounding areas are truly blessed by nature's gifts and, as such, this is the perfect destination for lovers of the great outdoors. From bathing in geo-thermal pools and snowmobiling across a glacier, to rafting, lava caving and whale watching, the only problem you'll have will be fitting it all in!
However, there are also plenty of urban attractions for culture hunters too, with a variety of museums and galleries to explore. And despite prohibition existing here until 1989, the city is quickly gaining a reputation for offering a legendary nightlife.
One of the main draws for many visitors to Reykjavik is the Northern Lights, when nature offers onlookers a stunning light show across the night sky. However, the only downside is that it is not always guaranteed, in which case you could pay a visit to the Aurora Reykjavik Northern Lights Centre, an interactive attraction that will allow you to learn all about the phenomenon.
Ready for an adventure? You'll be spoilt for choice for where to visit when you arrive in Reykjavik... so jump in your car and get exploring!
There is so much to see in the surrounding areas of the city and top of the list should be exploring the wonders of the Golden Circle. This includes the Thingvellir National Park, one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. Situated between the boundaries of tectonic plates, this fascinating and beautiful landscape can be explored via hiking trails or on horseback.
Haukadalur is another highlight of the Golden Circle where you will be able to witness spectacular geysers caused by volcanic heat underground boiling water which then sends hot springs sprouting up.
Gulfoss, one of Iceland's most famous waterfalls, is another place within the Golden Circle that your Reykjavik car rental will allow you to visit. Translated as 'Golden Falls', the glacial waters take on this colour on a sunny day due to the sediment from the earth.
Langjökul is also in the Golden Circle, and is an incredible glacier made up from a large number of volcanic craters filled with ice. Here you can stop off and take part in a safari via snowmobile, offering an exhilarating way to explore the landscape as you zip across the snow surrounded by volcanoes.
Another location definitely worth visiting in your car is the Blue Lagoon, which is about a 45-minute drive from Reykjavik. A natural geothermal spa, it is located in a lava field and is also one of the wonders of the world. It produces silica mud rich in minerals which you can use as a face mask while you relax surrounded by bizarre, lunar-like landscape.
