Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Reykjavik Open Air Museum and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). Visiting Hraunfossar and Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Brugghus Steoja (in Hvanneyri) and Borgarnes (Blomasetrid & The Settlement Center). There's lots more to do: visit a coastal fixture at Grotta Lighthouse, stop by Skumaskot, and examine the collection at Reykjavik Maritime Museum.
