Gay Reykjavik: The heat is on

Never been to Iceland? There's never been a better time to go. Take advantage of Icelandair's stopover package and take in the glaciers, geysers and so much more. The Eyjafjallajokull volcano has ignited a spark welcoming tourists to explore this natural and romantic destination.

Reykjavik is dynamic, cosmopolitan and increasingly open minded. In 2010 Iceland became the ninth country in the world to legalize same sex marriage. Icelanders like to party late, so be sure to take a disco nap before going out, and feel free to stay out all night long. Laugavegur Street is the epicenter of shopping and nightlife, also the home of Samtkin '78, the LBBT center in Iceland. Make sure you book a reservation for the Blue Lagoon (pictured) and the Golden Circle Tour where you can check out the Gullfoss waterfall, the geothermal Haukadalur, and the Ingvellir natural park. Have your nightcap at Barbara each night, or trek up to Glymur to have a glass of wine and watch the Northern Lights dancing over the famous "Whale Fjord."
