One of the next city guides we would like to launch as part of our mission to promote authentic culture is Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland!
Reykjavik gets a lot of tourists – some would argue even too many. Yet these tourists rarely get to experience the true culture of the city, or to understand it fully. That’s why we need you, locals who know your city better than anyone else, to show them what Reykjavik really is about.
There are many reasons to visit Reykjavik. To begin with, it allows tourists to see the Northern Lights, a common bucket list item; though this is not exclusive to Reykjavik. It also has its own exclusive highlights, such as the Hallgrimskirkja Church, Old Harbour, Perlan Museum, and Harpa Concert Hall. Unfortunately, these highlights are what most tourists focus on, so they seldom get to the heart of Reykjavik, its people. But we want to focus on people, on locals’ stories and experiences within this great city.
So what is it like to experience Reykyavik like a local? Where can you get the best coffee or local skyr? Where do locals relax or celebrate? This is what we and many travelers want to know!
