Let the collections at Reykjavik Open Air Museum and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar) capture your imagination. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Horseback Riding Tours and Grotta Lighthouse. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Hraunfossar Lava Waterfall (in Hraunfossar), Hraunfossar (in Husafell) and The Settlement Center (in Borgarnes). There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with Dive Iceland - Diving and Snorkeling in Iceland - Day Tours, pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, take in the dramatic scenery at Bruarfoss Waterfall, and take in the natural beauty of Geysir.
