Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.

Venture out of the city with trips to Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, and explore and take pictures at Perlan.
