Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Escape the urban bustle at Thingvellir National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Get a sense of the local culture at Hallgrimskirkja and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Thingvallakirkja church (in Thingvellir), Faxi (Vatnsleysufoss) Waterfall (in Skalholt) and Strokkur (in Geysir). There's lots more to do: take in the dramatic scenery at Gullfoss Falls, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, and witness a stunning natural landmark at Haukadalur.

To find traveler tips, ratings, photos, and tourist information, go to the Reykjavik trip itinerary maker app.
