Reykjavik

— 4 nights
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Thingvellir National Park and Perlan. Step out of the city life by going to Fishing Charters & Tours and Off-Road Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Strokkur (in Geysir), Keflavik Maritime Center (in Keflavik) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). Next up on the itinerary: take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, browse the exhibits of Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, and take in the natural beauty of Haukadalur.

Iceland travel guide

4.5
Land of Fire and Ice
Experience the drama of this mountainous island in the North Atlantic, from glacial rivers to rushing waterfalls and geothermal hot spots. Iceland's cities, like its capital Reykjavik, are home to passionate natives who honor their Icelandic culture and history. Venture from the cities to experience the country's most powerful attraction: its breathtaking landscapes. Take a trip to one of the island's renowned national parks, see the effects of volcanic activity, and go for a dip in one of its many lakes. A haven for outdoor recreation, you can glacier hike, whitewater raft, and swim in natural pools.
