Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Hallgrimskirkja and Thingvellir National Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore hidden gems such as Horseback Riding Tours and The Icelandic Punk Museum. When in Reykjavik, make a side trip to see Galgaklettur in Thingvellir, approximately Thingvellir away. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, and explore and take pictures at Reykjavik Open Air Museum.
