Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Hallgrimskirkja and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). Shop till you drop at Laugavegur and Kolaportid Flea Market. Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Blaskogabyggd (Haukadalur & Gullfoss Falls), Thingvellir (Thingvellir National Park & Galgaklettur) and Grindavik (Brimketill, Thermal Spas, &more). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager, and examine the collection at Aurora Reykjavik.
