Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, and contemplate the long history of Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition.

To plan Reykjavik vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

New Delhi, India to Reykjavik is an approximately 15-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from India Standard Time to Greenwich Mean Time is minus 5.5 hours. When traveling from New Delhi in January, plan for much colder days in Reykjavik, with highs around °C, while nights are slightly colder with lows around °C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Tue) early enough to go by car to Skogar.
