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 Strokkur (in Geysir), Thingvellir (Thingvellir National Park & Galgaklettur) and Blaskogabyggd (Haukadalur & Gullfoss). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

To see where to stay, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Reykjavik road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Saudi Arabia, the closest major airport is Keflavik International Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 11°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
