Reykjavik

Reykjavík (http://www.visitreykjavik.is/) is the capital and largest city of Iceland and with an urban area population of around 200,000, it is the home of the vast majority of Iceland's inhabitants. It is the center of culture and life of the Icelandic people as well as being one of the focal points of tourism in Iceland. The city itself is spread out, with sprawling suburbs. The city centre, however, is a very small area characterised by eclectic and colourful houses, with good shopping, dining and drinking. There is no need to tip anyone, despite all too many restaurants and shops having tip jars besides their cash register. Off-road driving in all of Iceland is illegal and huge fines are imposed when you are caught.
