Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Step out of the city life by going to Gullfoss and Strokkur. Museum-lovers will appreciate National Museum of Iceland and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir), Spas & Wellness (in Grindavik) and Keflavik Maritime Center (in Keflavik). The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, see the world from above with a helicopter tour, take in the natural beauty of Goecco Expeditions and Tours, and pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager.

For reviews, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Reykjavik vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Keflavik International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 38°F in January, and nighttime lows around 30°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
