Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Step out of the city life by going to Hraunfossar and Gunnuhver Hot Springs. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Food Tours. Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Selfoss (Kerið & Fridheimar) and Bruarfoss Waterfall (in Brekkuskogur). There's much more to do: push the limits with an extreme tour, boost your wellbeing at a local thermal spa, don't miss a visit to Laugavegur, and examine the collection at Aurora Reykjavik.
