Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Go for a jaunt from Reykjavik to Grindavik to see Thermal Spas about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland.

Plan my trip to Reykjavik with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Budapest, Hungary to Reykjavik is an approximately 8-hour flight. You can also do a combination of car and ferry. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time to Greenwich Mean Time is minus 1 hour. Traveling from Budapest in February, you will find days in Reykjavik are slightly colder (°C), and nights are about the same (°C). Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to drive to Vik.
