Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy. The streets of its center not only boast a dramatically scenic backdrop, but are also lined with an eclectic and colorful array of buildings. Walking along just one street can reveal quirky wooden constructions, 20th-century Functionalist towers, and ultra-sleek modern designs. These buildings house fine restaurants, museums, galleries, cafes, and traditional Icelandic spas. Away from the metropolis, you can enjoy the natural delights of the nearby mountains and the Atlantic Ocean. The city's nightlife and music scene is particularly lively, with much of the activity kicking off after midnight. Reykjavik is in Capital Region. Use our Iceland trip itinerary tool to arrange the hows, wheres, and whens of your trip to Reykjavik.
