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: Thermal Spas (in Grindavik), Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Kerið (in Selfoss). There's still lots to do: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, steep yourself in history at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), and see Off-Road Tours.
