Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get some historical perspective at Hallgrimskirkja and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition. Visiting Gullfoss Falls and Thingvellir National Park will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Thermal Spas (in Grindavik), Borgarnes Museum (in Borgarnes) and Keflavik Maritime Center (in Keflavik). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, stop by JS Watch Company, identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, and see the interesting displays at Tales from Iceland.
