Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You've now added Blue Lagoon to your itinerary. Hallgrimskirkja and Thingvellir National Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Nature & Wildlife Tours and Kayaking & Canoeing. There's much more to do: take a peaceful walk through Heidmork Nature Reserve, see what you can catch with a fishing tour, examine the collection at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and head outdoors with Outdoor Activities.

For reviews, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Reykjavik travel route builder.

Toronto, Canada to Reykjavik is an approximately 10-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Toronto to Reykjavik.
