Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Gullfoss Falls and Hallgrimskirkja. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir), Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Strokkur (in Geysir). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Reykjavik Open Air Museum.

For where to stay, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Reykjavik driving holiday site.
