Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Attractions like Hallgrimskirkja and Sun Voyager make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Thingvellir (Galgaklettur & Thingvellir National Park) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). Spend the 19th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Next up on the itinerary: indulge your taste buds at Food & Drink, see Off-Road Tours, steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and examine the collection at Perlan.
