The Reykjavík Grapevine is an alternative magazine based in Reykjavík. In fact, we're the one and only English-language source for coverage of Icelandic society, culture, music, travel, food and entertainment. We publish well-researched, short- and long-form reporting, commentary and analysis for readers living in Iceland, visiting Iceland or who are just Iceland-curious.
The Grapevine has been creating informative, entertaining, honest content since 2003.
Aside from our impeccable knowledge of all things Iceland, our integrity is our number one asset. Everything you read in the Reykjavík Grapevine and our Best of Reykjavík sister magazine is our own insights — you can rest assured our opinions are never bought by advertisers.
