Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get outdoors at Gullfoss and Dolphin & Whale Watching. Get a sense of the local culture at National Museum of Iceland and Thingvellir National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Viking World (in Keflavik), Strokkur (in Geysir) and Selfoss (Fridheimar, Gallery Floi, & more). Spend the 23rd (Tue) on horseback at Heidmork Nature Reserve. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, trot along with a tour on horseback, contemplate the long history of Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Reykjavik holiday builder website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Keflavik International Airport. July in Reykjavik sees daily highs of 17°C and lows of 10°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
