Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Creative Iceland has been added to your itinerary. Relax by the water at Ytri Tunga Beach and Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach. National Museum of Iceland and Perlan will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Strokkur (in Geysir), Thingvellir (Galgaklettur, Thingvellir National Park, &more) and Blaskogabyggd (Haukadalur & Gullfoss Falls). Spend the 17th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, see some colorful creatures with Dive Iceland - Diving and Snorkeling in Iceland - Day Tours, take in the dramatic scenery at Seljalandsfoss - Waterfall, and steep yourself in history at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar).

Capital Region travel guide

4.2
Churches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Nightlife
The capital region of the world's northernmost capital city, Reykjavik, boasts colorful buildings, lots of personality, and a rich culture. Forget skyscrapers and traffic jams in Iceland's biggest city. Instead, you can experience provincial charm in an urban setting. Peoplewatch while sipping coffee at a cafe, check out the local art scene, and stay up late enjoying this destination's thriving nightlife. Most Icelandic trips begin in this region because it houses the capital and several natural attractions. If you don't have time to explore the diverse landscapes across this country, visit local sites to view a land shaped by glacial activity, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.
