Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Step out of the city life by going to Dolphin & Whale Watching and Strokkur. You'll explore and learn at National Museum of Iceland and Gullfoss. Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Hella (Hekla Centre & Litla Lopasjoppan), Grindavik (Brimketill, Gunnuhver Hot Springs, & more) and Gljufrabui Waterfalls (in Skogar). Next up on the itinerary: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Thingvellir National Park, explore the galleries of Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), don't miss a visit to Perlan, and examine the collection at Aurora Reykjavik.

If you are flying in from Japan, the closest major airport is Keflavik International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in June, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
