Climate and weather
Reykjavík isn’t really a place you go to enjoy sunny beaches and top up on your tan. Reasons for visiting Iceland run much deeper than that.
Crime in Reykjavik
Crime, what crime? Reykjavik is one for the safest places in world. If you left your phone in the taxi, sure enough the driver would circle back round to give it to you.
Languages & foreign languages
Icelandic is of course the national language, but English is often spoken by younger people who will be more than happy to use the language with you.
As of 2007, Reykjavik joined the growing list of countries that have adopted a no smoking policy in public places. All restaurants, cafes and bars follow this rules.
Tipping is becoming more widespread in the Reykjavik nightlife, but in general it is a practice that isn’t very popular in Iceland, not even in taxis or restaurants and there is by no means any expectation that foreigners should tip. If you do however, want to leave a token of your appreciation then it will either be graciously received or politely turned down.
WI-FI internet connection
Wi-fi is available for free at most hotels, cafes and some bars in Reykjavik. In many cases if there is a password it is given by staff with no problems.
