Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, get outside with Outdoor Activities, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, and take in panoramic vistas at Perlan.

To find maps, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, use the Reykjavik trip planning site .

Muscat, Oman to Reykjavik is an approximately 14-hour flight. Traveling from Muscat to Reykjavik, you'll gain 4 hours due to the time zone difference.
