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 Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, and pause for some photo ops at Sun Voyager.

To see traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Reykjavik trip builder.

Medellin, Colombia to Reykjavik is an approximately 19-hour flight. You'll lose 5 hours traveling from Medellin to Reykjavik due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Medellin in March, expect Reykjavik to be cooler, temps between °C and °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Fri) so you can go by car to Vik.
