Release the Viking within!
Reykjavik is purely cinematic ... meet the legendary storytellers, explore the American-Eurasian tectonic plates, treat yourself to the powers of volcanically heated, glacially cooled baths by day and see the best of new world cinema by night, then prowl the nights if you have that many bars in your battery. A 5 hour flight from New York, this tiny island paradise exists on the edge ...cinema, culture, cuisine - a fantastic escape that restores and renews.
