Europe Trip 2015 – Day 30 – Reykjavik, Iceland

April 27, 2015

In theory, I was supposed to go on a glacier hike tour today. But my tour was canceled due to weather, so I ended up spending part of the day walking around Reykjavik instead. It was freezing cold, and a gale-force-wind warning was in effect. But I still wanted to see a bit of the city, since I wasn’t sure how much time I’ll get later this week (assuming all my tours go through from this point onward).

Walking down one of the main streets in Reykjavik. The city itself only has a population of around 120,000 people, so it’s a fairly small city, despite being Iceland’s largest.

Interior of the Hallgrimskirkja church. It’s simple, but beautiful.

View from the tower of the Hallgrimskirkja church. I think it was around $6 US dollars to go to the top, but the view was worth it, despite the strong wind!
