Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Take a break from the city and head to Thingvellir National Park and Scuba & Snorkeling. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at The Settlement Center and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). Step out of Reykjavik with an excursion to Viking World in Keflavik--about 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: admire all the interesting features of Videy Island, get engrossed in the history at Saga Museum, steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and wander the streets of Laugavegur.
