Traffic Information back to top

Reykjavik continues to be one of the smallest capitals in the world at a population of just over 100,000. As such, traffic in the capital city is almost nonexistent with many roads and highways leading drivers to Reykjavik's main neighborhoods and outlying cities. Route 1, or the Ring Road, will take you all the way around the island for a fantastic view of both the urban and rural parts of Ireland. With a rather small local population, most likely you will encounter tourists on Iceland's highways en route to enjoy the magnificent natural wonders of Reykjavik and it surrounds. It is also a good idea to download the emergency 112 app in case you should run into any difficulties while out on the road.

Sixt Tips back to top

Despite misconceptions surrounding the name, Iceland is not in fact a floating iceberg. With a similar climate to other Northern European countries, the majority of Iceland's landscape is actually made up of mountains and volcanoes. Understandably then, much of Iceland's tourist appeal stems from its natural beauty and plethora of outdoor activities. Some of the most popular locations include visits to nearby icebergs, waterfalls, and beaches at Skogafoss, Gullfoss, and Jokulsarlon Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon spa in the center of Reykjavik is the most famous location to sit back and treat yourself to a relaxing day in the geothermal spa. If you find yourself visiting between September and April, make sure to look up into the sky and take in the natural colorful phenomenon of the Northern Lights.

As an added bonus, every evening the Horse Park puts on a show on the biggest stage in Iceland so that you can learn more about Norse mythology and Iceland's history with domesticating this majestic beast.

Business Travel back to top

The largest economy in Iceland, Reykjivak was also found in 2007 to be the richest country in the world. After a decline in the wake of the 2008 recession, the government has worked to improve its construction. Luckily, by harnessing its natural resources in geothermal and hydroelectric power, Iceland provides 85% of energy with renewable systems. Iceland's biggest export continues to be focused around marine resources providing a large portion of the world's fish needs. Though its economy is still rather small, its mixed economy and minimal government interference make it an interesting point of interest for trade. Many business related happenings take place at the Harpa Concert Hall and Conference Centre. This elegant waterfront structure opened in 2011 and hosts many events year round. A number of modern conference rooms and host of amenities are available for a diverse range of events.

Distance to Harpa Concert Hall and Convention Centre:

  • From Keflavik International Airport: 1 mile, about 8 minutes
  • From Reykjavik Domestic Airport: 3 miles, about 10 minutes
  • From Reykjavik Marnina: 1.5 miles, about 7minutes
