Reykjavik
Suggested Private Excursion
6/28/2021
6/28/2021

The fire, frost and water symbolized by the red, white and blue of Iceland’s flag are manifested in this land. Reykjavik, or Smoky Bay, was so named in 874 A.D. by Ingolf Arnarson when he sighted the numerous hot springs on the Seltjarnarnes Peninsula. Today this remarkably pollution-free city is wrapped around a sweeping bay and has managed to retain its charming Old-World atmosphere. A pastiche of red-blue-and green-roofed houses together with the tall gray tower of Hallgrim’s Church dominate the skyline. In Old Town, many of the wooden buildings have been lovingly restored and stand side by side with modern timber and concrete structures. There are fine museums and art galleries; historic pubs present activity in late afternoon. The beautiful countryside outside of Reykjavik includes such natural wonders as volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, mountains and spectacular waterfalls.

Settled by the Norse in the 7th century, the Westman (Westmann) Islands are composed of dramatic coastlines, shaped by numerous volcanic events throughout their history.

Heimaey is the only inhabited island and is dotted with colorful homes along the base of wild seacliffs and green landscapes. You can tour the island's rugged coastline and see orcas, puffin colonies, and the seacave Kettshellur. Every August, the island comes alive with the Westman Islands Festival, with  bonfires and live music 24/7.

Later on the Danish introduced the trade monopoly and took over themselves. The oldest houses (1788-1818) date back to the Danish period. One of them, Langabud (1790), has been renovated and transformed into a nice restaurant and museums. Fishing, fish processing and commerce are the main trades.
