Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.

And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, see the interesting displays at Aurora Reykjavik, explore the world behind art at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), and wander the streets of Laugavegur.
