Popular Destinations and Holidays
Reykjavik - Iceland’s capital, Reykjavik, is small in size, but big in heart. Almost regarded as a town, it’s so tiny, but filled to the brim with cultural experiences and activities. Be sure to hike up the snow capped mountains and breathe in the clean, icy air, devoid of pollution. Reykjavik is also full of restaurants and bars offering traditional Icelandic cuisine, and some western favourites such as burgers and pizza. As Iceland came to fruition during viking settlement, there are many museums to amuse yourself with in the area.
Kópavogur - Explore Iceland’s second largest municipality by population, Kópavogur. With an abundance of museums, get your fill of history and contemporary art in this town, or go shopping in the largest shopping centre in Iceland, Smáralind. Hosting over 80 shops and services, including big named businesses and ones smaller and local. The perfect place to pick up your souvenirs. You could also take up skiing, with Iceland’s biggest ski resort (Bláfjöll) only an hour away from central Kopavogur.
Húsavík - Whale watch on the beautiful coast of Husavik, Iceland. A whale-watching capital, you can take a boat out and see these mighty sea creatures for yourself, and then follow up your trip into the whale museum. Husavik also boasts little colourful houses and snow-capped mountains as its backdrop, making it one of Iceland’s most picturesque fishing villages.

Travel Risks in Iceland
Iceland is considered one of the safest countries in the world, and crime is virtually nonexistent, even in Reykjavik. However, you should always exercise caution with your belongings and keep your valuables in sight at all times.
The biggest danger to you will be the changing weather in Iceland, as it can get very cold very quickly. Make sure you have the correct winter clothing and equipment when going about your snowy ventures.
