Reykjavik — 3 nights

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

And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, let your taste buds guide you at a local gastronomic tour, take in panoramic vistas at Perlan, and cast your line with a fishing tour.

For other places to visit, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Reykjavik trip itinerary planning website.
