Reykjavík has been named European Adventure Destination of the Year for 2018 by the Luxury Travel Guide. This is the second consecutive year that the travel periodical has selected Reykjavík as a destination. Last year Reykjavík was picked the Winter Destination of 2017.

The publication's panel of experts describes Reykjavík as "city of culture located in a spectacular landscape, with a wide range of activities in the glow of the Northern Lights." A family visit to Reykjavík, they say, is "a recipe for exciting adventures and unique memories, an opportunity not to be missed."

The Luxury Travel Guide is a periodical on luxury travel, distributed to more than 500,000 subscribers, as well as 10,000 luxury hotels, airport lounges, cruise ships and travel agencies around the world. In a statement to the press Áshildur Bragadóttir, Director of Visit Reykjavík, says the award recognizes the diversity of activities offered in Reykjavík.
