    Finding other expats interested in playing squash in Reykjavik seemed difficult. But with InterNations I found them easily.

Further Information on Expat Life in Reykjavík

Reykjavik is the beautiful coastal capital of Iceland, known as the land of fire and ice. Despite its name, the country is not actually covered in ice year round, and is home to spectacular sweeping hills, hot springs, waterfalls and volcanoes. Reykjavik itself is within driving distance of various unique sites, such as the Blue Lagoon spa or the Great Geysir that coined the English name for this phenomenon. The city also features a host of historic architecture, such as the Perlan glass dome and the Hallgrimskirkja church. There is a very sophisticated lifestyle available for expats in Reykjavik. The safe and fun city is known for its laid-back atmosphere, night scene and excellent restaurants. Expats typically also find the transition to living in Iceland an easy one, with many city-dwellers speaking both English and Icelandic.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Zurich or Moscow, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

Find New Friends and Grow Your Network of Expats in Reykjavík

InterNations is a network for expats that is used only by members that have been approved first. This means when you are using InterNations, you can be sure that you are communicating in a safe and secure environment in which trust, respect, and friendliness are highly valued. When you arrive in Reykjavik, you can also get together with other expats almost straightaway by joining one or more of our interest-based InterNations Groups in Reykjavik or visiting an InterNations Official Event. Even if there isn't anything happening right now, you can always create a group yourself and meet other expats by doing something you love in your new country.

    Iceland is not the expat country number one. But I met truly global minds with InterNations. It really works.
