Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Strokkur (in Geysir), Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Gullfoss Falls (in Blaskogabyggd). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, and indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour.
