Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Thermal Spas (in Grindavik), Gullfoss Falls (in Blaskogabyggd) and Strokkur (in Geysir). There's lots more to do: savor the flavors at Food & Drink, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, explore and take pictures at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and explore the striking landscape of Thingvellir National Park.

For traveler tips, ratings, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Reykjavik trip website.
