It was a sunny day when the plane landed and we saw the white mountains of Iceland and Reykjavík appearing in the distance. We arrived at 9am in the morning and were taken to the city. On the way, we saw lots of snow-capped peaks, Icelandic horses and brightly painted houses.
24 hours in Reykjavík
The country’s capital is located on the south-west coast. The best way to explore the city is by spending two to three hours with a private guide. The most striking and must-see edifice is the Hallgrímskirkja church, a modern cathedral built in concrete that can be seen from every corner of town and which has a spectacular view of the city and surroundings from its tower.
