Iceland is on everyone’s lips. Stranded in the middle of the North Atlantic, this rugged island with its incredible landscapes and adventurous activities is one of the most popular travel destinations.
The world’s northernmost capital combines colourful buildings, bizarre and creative people, stunning design, wild nightlife and a whimsical soul.
This country, covering an area of about 100,000 square kilometres, is located in the heart of the North Atlantic Ocean on the mid-Atlantic ridge, on the only part that is submerged due to the presence of a hot spot. The Arctic Circle article is located only a few kilometers above the island, this imaginary line even crosses Grimsey Island. Its physical geography is very rugged with an average altitude of 500 metres, a multitude of peaks exceeding 1500 metres and a relief marked by the particular physiognomy of volcanoes and glaciers. Finally, water is omnipresent, with of course the sea surrounding the island, but there are also powerful rivers. Iceland is a paradoxical country: isolated in the middle of the Atlantic, sparsely populated, located not far from the Arctic Circle, with a harsh climate and difficult lands, it is nevertheless one of the most developed countries in the world.
Reykjavík, the capital and largest city of Iceland. It is located on the Seltjarnar peninsula, at the southeast corner of Faxa Bay, in southwestern Iceland. Reykjavik, the world’s northernmost capital, offers a surprising variety of cultural and social events as well as an abundance of trendy restaurants, cafés and bars. There are also many museums and galleries throughout the city, with presentations ranging from Viking relics to modern art exhibitions. As for the country in general, Reykjavík is a city of contrasts, with charming historic stone and wooden buildings blending with imaginative modern architecture.
Tower Suites Reykjavík is a new private residence in Iceland, ideal for those who want to live comfortably or who want to marvel at what life has to offer. The eight suites are located on the 20th floor of one of the city’s most distinctive buildings, adding flavour to the intriguing skyline. Each suite has its distinctive character, and with a panoramic view in all directions, you will enjoy one of the rarest views of the city and the surrounding mountain range, with a view that varies with time and even the light changes.
Located inside the old Zimsen house in Reykjavik, it is an old store that was built in the 19th century. The interior of the restaurant is both glamorous and comfortable. In this setting, the owner and master chef, Lárus Gunnar Jónasson, leads a talented work team, using the best products that Iceland has to offer. The menus are the result of a fusion between land and sea.
During this adventure you will have the opportunity to put on crampons, harnesses and helmet to compete against the large tongue of ice Solheimajökull, from the Myrdalsjökull glacier, in the south of Iceland. Your guide will introduce you to “crevasses”, “ice cones” and other “mills” or “pots”, and explain why they exist. A lunch break will be made on the ice, in an extraordinary setting.
Excursion to the first stop on the tour, which is Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This place is a geological symbol, due to the separation of tectonic plates, but also political, because it was the scene of what was the first European Parliament. Then a magical ride on the tracks leading to the high plateaus near the shield volcano Skjaldbreið, then in the direction of the “long glacier” (Langjökull).
