Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Visiting Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach and Thingvellir National Park will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar) and The House at Eyrarbakki. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Blomasetrid (in Borgarnes) and Viking World (in Keflavik). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, look for gifts at Metal Design, get a taste of the local shopping with Laugavegur, and steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition.

For ratings, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, use the Reykjavik journey planner.
