Iceland is truly in a world of its own thanks to its magnificent natural wonders and utterly distinctive architecture. This is a place where craters leave profound indentations in the landscape and waterfalls and geysers produce swirling mists. By taking a city break to the capital, Reykjavik, you can see for yourself how inspiring this island is. According to Landnámabók, Ingólfr Arnarson established Reykjavik as Iceland’s first permanent settlement in AD 874. Urban development in the city did not begin until the 18th century. It is among the world’s safest, greenest, and cleanest cities. Take a thrilling RIB speedboat ride to discover the astounding variety of marine life that exists just off the coast of Reykjavik City. Nature lovers should take advantage of this chance right away to see some of Iceland’s stunning whales, dolphins, and porpoises in a small group. The cruise departs from Reykjavk’s Old Harbour and takes you along the city’s coast as well as among the small islands of Faxaflói Bay, giving you a breathtaking view of the city while you search for marine life.
