Reykjanes Peninsula and Reykjavik
Reykjanes Peninsula is a UNESCO Global Geopark and part of the European and Global Geopark network. The peninsula, with its diversity of volcanic and geothermal activity, is well suited to be a Geopark as it is the only place in the world where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge is visible above sea level.
The Reykjavík Capital Area is the country’s largest and most populated city and currently home to 232.070 people (2019), that’s two-thirds of the entire Icelandic population!
