Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Strokkur (in Geysir), Blaskogabyggd (Haukadalur & Gullfoss) and Thingvellir (Thingvellir National Park & Galgaklettur). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

For traveler tips, maps, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Reykjavik itinerary planning tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Keflavik International Airport. April in Reykjavik sees daily highs of 43°F and lows of 32°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
