Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Hraunfossar and Laugavegur. Visit Hallgrimskirkja and Hvalsneskirkja for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Grindavik (Thermal Spas & Gunnuhver Hot Springs), The Settlement Center (in Borgarnes) and Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Tales from Iceland, get to know the fascinating history of Reykjavik Open Air Museum, step off the mainland to explore Videy Island, and get your game on at Mink Viking Portrait Studio.
