Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Attractions like Hallgrimskirkja and Sun Voyager make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, contemplate the long history of Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, examine the collection at Aurora Reykjavik, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Reykjavik trip simple and quick.

Mumbai, India to Reykjavik is an approximately 20-hour flight. Traveling from Mumbai to Reykjavik, you'll gain 5.5 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Mumbai in May, things will get much colder in Reykjavik: highs are around °C and lows about °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Wed) early enough to drive to Geysir.
