CNN votes Reykjavik Iceland as best Christmas holiday destination
Reykjavik, Iceland has been voted as this yearís best Christmas holiday destination by CNNGO, CNNís travel website. Reykjavik was listed as the number one destination, beating the likes of Nuremberg, Germany; Pogost, Belarus; Salzburg Austria and Sydney, Australia.
Christmas in Iceland is an incredible time; Reykjavik especially has many things to experience. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day enjoy a traditional Icelandic Christmas dinner at some of the best restaurants in Reykjavik, tasting delicacies such as Hangikjot (smoked lamb served with potatoes, vegetables and a white sauce) or Rjupa (Icelandic Ptarmigan).
In the evening before Christmas Eve, Reykjavik becomes alive. The 23rd December is traditionally known as Thorlaksmessa, or the Mass of St. Thorlakur. This day is celebrated by joining in with the festivities, drinking mulled wine, last minute shopping and partying at various wonderful cafes and bars in downtown Reykjavik. You can also try the traditional dish of putrefied skate, if you are up for the challenge.
For children, Iceland has not one but 13 Santas, or Yule lads, bearing goodie bags at Christmas parties. They make their way into town one day at a time starting from 12th December. For the adults, why not shop for some unique gifts in Reykjavik city centre or visit the charming Christmas Village in Hafnarfjordur? Visit the Christmas-themed museum exhibitions and explore the winter landscape.
