Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Escape the urban bustle at Thingvellir National Park and Askja. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Kolaportid Flea Market and Metal Design. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and stop by 12 Tonar.
