Hilly hippie heartland
San Francisco is the cultural and financial centre of Northern California and it‘s the second most densely populated city in the United States after New York City, but with only an estimated population of 835 thousand. Check out our favourite tours in San Francisco when you've booked your flight.
San Francisco is known for its liberal attitude and as the birthplace of the “hippie” counterculture, the Sexual Revolution and the Peace Movement. The city is home to one of the largest and oldest pride parade and the festivities are truly something to witness and be a part of.
The city's climate is mild all year round thanks to the fact that the area is surrounded by water on three sides. The cool currents of the Pacific Ocean regulate temperature swings keeping everyone cool during the summer and warm during the winter.
If you're going to San Francisco, turn your layover in Iceland into a WOW stopover (cause there aren't any geysers in the airport). It‘s almost like getting two vacations for the price of one.
Get around round!
Public transport is well used in San Francisco but in addition to a great transit system, the city also runs a historic streetcar line and the famous cable cars that are now a National Historic Landmark and a major attraction. San Francisco has also been ranked the second-most walkable city in the United States.
From the infamous Alcatraz Prison (make sure to book your trip there well in advance) to the Golden Gate Bridge, one of the seven wonders of the modern world, San Francisco impresses its visitors with its stunning landmarks. In addition, great food, magnificent wines, culture, history, and nightlife will ensure that you'll never get enough of this great city.
California is wine country and there are many wine regions to be found, the most famous of which are Napa and Sonoma, both about an hour's drive north of San Francisco. Both regions boast rolling hills lined with some of the world's most coveted grapes but whereas Napa Valley is home to grand estates and elegance, Sonoma County has a more intimate feel.
