Reykjavik

— 3 nights
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Hallgrimskirkja and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition will appeal to history buffs. Take a break from the city and head to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Thingvellir National Park. Step out of Reykjavik with an excursion to Thermal Spas in Grindavik--about 46 minutes away. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, explore and take pictures at Perlan, see Off-Road Tours, and explore the world behind art at Gerdarsafn Kopavogur Art Museum.
