Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Kick off your visit on the 19th (Fri): soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, steep yourself in history at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, and finally pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager. Keep things going the next day: trot along with a tour on horseback and then surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

For reviews, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Reykjavik trip generator.
