Reykjavik — 4 nights

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: Blue Lagoon (in Grindavik) and Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir). And it doesn't end there: let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, see Off-Road Tours, and explore the world behind art at National Museum of Iceland.

Make your Reykjavik itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.
