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 Thingvallakirkja church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Blaskogabyggd (Gullfoss Falls & Haukadalur), Faxi (Vatnsleysufoss) Waterfall (in Skalholt) and Strokkur (in Geysir). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, enjoy breathtaking views from Perlan, appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager, and admire all the interesting features of Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition.
