Reykjavic Travel Guide

by our Iceland expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryIceland perhaps, but the capital Reykjavic is ‘hot’; even its name is Icelandic for ‘steam bay’. All its inhabitants’ heating, including water, is provided by the abundant natural geo-thermal resources that lie just below the surface – or above, once you leave built-on areas. (A short trip takes you to the original ‘Geysir’ or to the famed ‘Blue Lagoon’, an open air spa-pool that’s a by-product of a thermal power station.) ‘The Pearl’ is a marvellous combination of hill-top hot-water reservoir, observatory and superb restaurant. In summer you can read a paper in the street at midnight; in winter, seek light at any time of day in the many bars and restaurants packed with large and jolly locals, themselves offering warmth to visitors.
