Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Thingvellir National Park and Reykjavik Open Air Museum. Get some historical perspective at Hallgrimskirkja and Grotta Lighthouse. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: The Settlement Center (in Borgarnes) and Reykjadalur Hot Springs (in Hveragerdi). There's much more to do: step off the mainland to explore Videy Island, get interesting insight from Tours, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Cemetery Holavallagardur.
