Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Keflavik Maritime Center (in Keflavik) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). Spend the 22nd (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, trot along with a tour on horseback, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland.

To find maps, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, read Reykjavik trip itinerary planner.

Lisbon, Portugal to Reykjavik is an approximately 10-hour flight. When traveling from Lisbon in March, plan for cooler days and a bit cooler nights in Reykjavik: temperatures range from 4°C by day to -1°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to go by car to Vik.
