Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Thingvellir (Thingvellir National Park & Galgaklettur), Svartsengi Geothermal Power Plant (in Svartsengi) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). Spend the 1st (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, see the interesting displays at Aurora Reykjavik, and see Off-Road Tours.

For photos, traveler tips, other places to visit, and more tourist information, read our Reykjavik day trip planning app.

Brussels, Belgium to Reykjavik is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Brussels to Reykjavik due to the time zone difference. Expect a daytime high around 3°C in February, and nighttime lows around -1°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Vik.
