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 Keflavik Maritime Center (in Keflavik), Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, take a stroll through Laugavegur, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and see Off-Road Tours.

For reviews, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Reykjavik travel itinerary planner.

Toronto, Canada to Reykjavik is an approximately 10-hour flight. Traveling from Toronto to Reykjavik, you'll lose 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Toronto in November, expect nights in Reykjavik to be about the same, around °C, while days are little chillier, around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to drive to Geysir.
