Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get out of town with these interesting Reykjavik side-trips: Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Spas & Wellness (in Grindavik). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, explore the world behind art at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), see the interesting displays at The Settlement Exhibition, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland.
