Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
The Settlement Exhibition and Volcano House will appeal to museum buffs. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Thingvellir National Park and The Settlement Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Viking World (in Keflavik) and Spas & Wellness (in Grindavik). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, look for gifts at foa, and don't miss a visit to Laugavegur.
