Well, it’s has been enough written about Iceland’s untouched beauty, fresh Arctic air and ice white surroundings, but did you know that Reykjavik’s air condition is brilliant? The city’s air quality has a rating of 87.50 which hints that it’s more than fairly clean and pure.
It looks like the mystery of Reykjavik being the least polluted in the world is due to less population. It has around 120,000 people even though, it is the heart of Iceland’s cultural, governmental activity and economic. So apart from having the cleanest air possible, it might also have the limited sound pollution if less population is an indicator.
