October 16, 2015

Reykjavik Church

Reykjavik, like the whole of Iceland, is getting more and more popular, and as a consequence made-for-tourists posts are popping up left and right.
As a result, we often get questions about how to get a genuine experience of Icelandic life. Around two thirds of the Icelandic population lives in the greater Reykjavik area – but where do these locals go?
