Reykjavik is Iceland’s cosmopolitan capital city that is considered one of the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world. The world-class city has 1,100 years of history and acts as a gateway to a universe far away. Fishing boats wade in the water along the shores of the Faxaflói Bay. Colorful buildings stand out on the tranquil cobalt waters, and expansive prairies border the city. Mount Esja towers over the city’s skyline. Snow often tops the mountains, offering a slight connection to the icy landscape of the enemy base. Your private transfer meets you at Keflavik International Airport upon your arrival in Reykjavik.
You settle into the Art Deco Borg Hotel, located in the heart of the city across from the Althingi, the Icelandic parliament building. Iceland’s first parliament was founded in the 10th century, but the current parliament building was erected in the late 19th century. The stone building carries a graceful ambiance, speaking to the importance of community and cooperation.
