Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
On the 9th (Sun), get outside with Outdoor Activities, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and then steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, then get up close to creatures of the deep with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and then take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland.

For reviews, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, go to the Reykjavik trip maker.

Columbus, USA to Reykjavik is an approximately 12-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 5 hours traveling from Columbus to Reykjavik. When traveling from Columbus in September, plan for colder days and a bit cooler nights in Reykjavik: temperatures range from 52°F by day to 43°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Mon) early enough to go by car to Vik.
