Ghost Town Reykjavík

Valur and his canine co-host Pollý take you on a tour of a nearly deserted downtown Reykjavík while updating the Covid-19 crisis news.

Where are all the people?

Some of them are here:

The trio heading Iceland’s COVID-19 response, Chief of Police Víðir Reynis­son, Surgeon General Alma D. Möller and Head Epidemiologist, Þór­ólfur Guðna­son, has teamed up with several well-known Icelandic musicians to deliver some public health advice in the form of song. The social-distancing anthem, ‘Travel Indoors’, was released on YouTube last night.

UPDATE: Hannah Jane takes us on a video tour of noted Icelandic tourist spots without all the tourists:

You are making me long for Iceland. I took a look at the Polarhestar website where I stayed and rode horses north of Akureyri back in 2007. It made me feel homesick. I felt so comfortable and relaxed there.
