Capital Region

Trip Planner Europe  /  Iceland  /  Capital Region
The capital region of the world's northernmost capital city, Reykjavik, boasts colorful buildings, lots of personality, and a rich culture. Forget skyscrapers and traffic jams in Iceland's biggest city. Instead, you can experience provincial charm in an urban setting. Peoplewatch while sipping coffee at a cafe, check out the local art scene, and stay up late enjoying this destination's thriving nightlife. Most Icelandic trips begin in this region because it houses the capital and several natural attractions. If you don't have time to explore the diverse landscapes across this country, visit local sites to view a land shaped by glacial activity, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions. Plan how to spend your time in Capital Region and other destinations in Iceland using our Iceland vacation planner.
