Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get a sense of the local culture at Thingvellir National Park and Laugavegur. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotstrandarkirkja (in Hveragerdi), Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Thingvellir (Thingvallakirkja church & Galgaklettur). There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, stop by Litla Lopasjoppan, see the interesting displays at Lava Centre, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja.
