Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Venture out of the city with trips to Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). And it doesn't end there: get outside with Outdoor Activities, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja.
