Reykjavik

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: Thingvellir (Thingvellir National Park & Galgaklettur) and Grindavik (Brimketill & Thermal Spas). Spend the 28th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, take in the views from Bridge Between Continents, and admire the masterpieces at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar).

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Reykjavik trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
