One-time haunt of Viking warriors, Reykjavik is perhaps the most surprising stopover between Britain and the USA. Take a city break to Reykjavik from Glasgow Airport and discover Nordic chic, all-night nightlife and volcanic activity literally underfoot.

Iceland after-hours

Despite a reputation for high drinks prices, nightlife in Reykjavik is famous across Scandinavia. On summer evenings, locals take advantage of 24-hour daylight for the epic bar crawl known as the r├║ntur. Essential stops include reclaimed biscuit factory Kex Hostel (Sk├║lagata 28), dance-clubs Bakkus (Tryggvagata 22) and Faktor├Ż (Smi├░just├şgur 6), and Reykjavik institution Kaffibarinn (Bergsta├░astr├Žti 1), a favourite hangout of singer Bj├Ârk. A hearty meal is an essential starting point if you hope to last a whole night under the midnight sun. Snaps (├×├│rsgata 1) and Grillmarka├░ur (L├Žkjargata 2A) are the current favourites with Reykjavik foodies.

Designer capital

Design is everywhere in the Icelandic capital, from the elegant ceramics and jewellery on sale in the Laugavegur and Sk├│lav├Ârdust├şgur districts, to the towering facade of Hallgrimskirkja, Iceland's largest church, inspired by the natural forms of volcanic basalt. Architecture in Reykjavik varies from the futuristic (check out the shimmering glass walls of the Harpa Concert Hall) to the historic ÔÇô A├░alstr├Žti is lined with timber houses dating back to the 1760s.

Thermal city

IcelandÔÇÖs volcanic origins lie close to the surface in Reykjavik, where swimming pools and public beaches are heated by natural thermal springs. The most famous volcanic hotspot is just outside of the city on the way to the airport at Keflavik ÔÇô even while snow falls and the Northern Lights fill the sky, the pools of the Blue Lagoon bask at a balmy 37-39┬░C. Another easy detour is the geothermal spring at Geysir, where the geyser Strokkur blows its top every four to eight minutes.
