Reykjavík is situated on the southwestern coast of Iceland and although it’s the northernmost capital of the world, it has a mild climate because of its proximity to the Gulf Stream. It only has a population of 117,000 people and is smaller than most major European cities. But Reykjavík is still teeming with activity. The city’s official tourist site keeps track of the city’s upcoming events and gives a taste for what life is like in the north’s nightlife capital. On this site you can view an interactive map (just click on the button on the site’s homepage), take a look through a Web cam
, or go to the “360 Degree Tours
” area for full views of some of the city’s main attractions.
