The fastest-growing tourist demographic in Iceland are long-weekenders who don't come just to party . . . but if there were no party they wouldn't come. Reykjavík rocks like a city 10 times its size, with more than 50 bars and clubs in the city center. Thankfully there's much more to Reykjavík's famous nightlife than bar-hopping, and any evening in the capital is full of cultural activity.


Surprisingly Reykjavík has no full-time arty theater; offerings are generally American blockbusters (though at least movies aren't dubbed into Icelandic). Tickets are generally 800kr ($13/£6.40). The daily newspaper Morgunbalðið has film listings in English, or go to and click the "Í Bíó" tab.
