Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Appreciate the collections at National Museum of Iceland and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition. Head to Laugavegur and Kolaportid Flea Marketfor plenty of shopping. Get out of town with these interesting Reykjavik side-trips: Thermal Spas (in Grindavik), Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Selfoss (Gallery Floi & Kerið). There's still lots to do: admire the sheer force of Gullfoss Falls, take in panoramic vistas at Perlan, appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja.

To see photos, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Reykjavik day trip planning website .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Keflavik International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 2°C in December, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
