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: Strokkur (in Geysir), Thingvellir (Galgaklettur & Thingvellir National Park) and Gullfoss Falls (in Blaskogabyggd). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, get your game on at Mink Viking Portrait Studio, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, and admire the masterpieces at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar).
