Reykjavik travel tips

1) For smooth talks with locals in Reykjavik, try to remember a few phrases in Icelandic

You will feel comfortable speaking English in Reykjavik. But it is so pleasant to see locals' approval smiles after attempts to say a few words in their native language. Try saying “Góðan daginn” to greet people (pronounced ‘go-than di-yen’), and “Takk” for an informal to thank someone.

2) Book a taxi in Reykjavik in advance

You can not hail taxis from the road as you do in other countries. Besides, there are no such taxi services like Uber or Lyft. In Reykjavik, you need to book a taxi on the phone by calling Hreyfill service (+354-588-5522) or BSR service (+354-561-0000).

3) Beatles fans will appreciate Imagine the Peace Tower in Reykjavik

Not far from Reykjavik, on the Viðey island, there is a mecca for Beatles fans. The Imagine Peace Tower is a memorial dedicated to John Lennon. Its name dates back to the “Imagine” song lyrics. The memorial is a 4 km high pillar of light directed upwards with the carved inscription “imagine the peace” in 24 languages. Try to find your language and share the photo.
