Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar) and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition will appeal to museum buffs. Your inner history buff will appreciate Grotta Lighthouse and Stekkjarkot. There's lots more to do: examine the collection at Volcano House, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, and wander the streets of Laugavegur.
