Take your bathers! Lets start by saying, neither Reykjavik, nor most of Iceland is actually icy. Reykjavik is rather small, very walkable, and very much like any small city but truely a cultural, cosmopolitan city, with great restaurants and lively nightlife. It has a population of about 200,000, and this video is shot by guest presenter and is rather fast and out there but he gets through everything from eating rotten shark (a delicacy) to whale meat, looks at museums, the cathedral, and the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa, where minerals bubble up from 5,000ft below the earth’s surface. It is one of the steaming healthy open-air pools heated by the very geothermal springs that inspired Reykjavik’s name. It is a good start to Reykjavik, which means smokey or steamy Island. Welcome to the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’. The ice however is way away from on one of the exciting glacier safari tours.P&O Cruises that go to Iceland – look and book with this link direct at P&O but through us
