Greinasafni: Icelandic Times
Welcome to this new edition of the Icelandic Times - our largest yet
Welcome to this new edition of the Icelandic Times - our largest yet. It is packed with ideas, information, history
and culture from the moment you land at the airport.
This edition focuses mainly on the West and South West of Iceland. That includes the Reykjanes peninsula on which the airport is located, the capital, Reykjavik and all the towns around the bays below the West Fjords.
Reykjanes is one of the most popular areas for tours and justifiably so, as there is so much of interest there. Its coastline is wild and extreme in winter, with bountiful fishing but summer brings a completely different face to the peninsula.
A whole section of Reykjavik has recently undergone a major transformation. Down by the harbour you will find a group of fishermen’s sheds that have been transformed into a bustling cultural community, with restaurants, shops and interesting events. Across the Faxaf lói Bay, you can see Akranes. We take a look at this town and its
many activities, where its Celtic history still influences life there today.
Just as Spring is bringing new life to the land, so we are seeing new initiatives blossoming after the economic problems of the last few years. That can only be a good thing for the visitor and, with the help of this magazine, we hope you will enjoy that resurgent growth.
You can use the QR codes with a smartphone to easily contact any of the places you are interested in. (Scanner
applications can be downloaded free of charge for all the major makes of phone.) If you visit our website, you will find all the links there, too, along with the articles in both this magazine and earlier issues.
We look forward to seeing you and hope you enjoy both this magazine and your visit.
