Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Take a break from the city and head to Thingvellir National Park and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Discover out-of-the-way places like The Settlement Center and Aurora Borealis. Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Horseback Riding Tours (in Hella) and Lava Centre (in Hvolsvollur). There's more to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour and pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja.
