Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Museum-lovers will appreciate National Museum of Iceland and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Strokkur. Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Thermal Spas (in Grindavik), Bruarfoss Waterfall (in Brekkuskogur) and Blaskogabyggd (Haukadalur & Gullfoss Falls). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, browse the exhibits of Perlan, take an in-depth tour of Saga Museum, and see the interesting displays at Tales from Iceland.

To find maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Reykjavik trip planner .

San Juan, Puerto Rico to Reykjavik is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 4 hours traveling from San Juan to Reykjavik.

Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 25th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
