Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You'll explore and learn at National Museum of Iceland and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition. Visiting Gullfoss Falls and Bruarfoss Waterfall will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Faxi (Vatnsleysufoss) Waterfall (in Skalholt), Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Haukadalur (in Blaskogabyggd). Next up on the itinerary: get outside with Outdoor Activities, see the interesting displays at Aurora Reykjavik, witness a stunning natural landmark at Strokkur, and get engrossed in the history at Saga Museum.
