is closer than you think – and more fun than you’ve ever dreamt
of. This mid-Atlantic island is the USA’s closest European neighbor. With
a flight time from New York only a jet lag-free 4.5 hours, you’re ready
for action as soon as you arrive. And no matter the season, there’s always
more than enough waiting for you to do.
The chilliest thing about Iceland is its name! In January, the average temperature
in Reykjavik, Iceland’s capital, is higher than that in New York. And
Iceland’s welcome for tourists is always warm. Almost everyone speaks
fluent English and Icelanders aren’t really given to formalities. After
all, even the telephone directory lists people by their first name.
Reykjavik is a city where you’ll feel safe to walk the streets. Cozy,
charming, a “village feel” and friendly people. But as much entertainment,
action and things to do as a metropolis of millions. And with all the modern
conveniences, a high quality of life and world-class services. Even so, it’s
still only a 15-minute cab ride between downtown and wild nature, where you’ll
feel you’re the only person on Earth. Iceland is the ideal place for taking
a break and setting foot on a European outpost with an exciting, lively, and
ancient – but living culture all of its own. You’ll feel at home
– free to walk around, shop, admire, explore. It’s a place you could
go on discovering forever.
