Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Venture out of the city with trips to Thingvellir (Thingvallakirkja church, Thingvellir National Park, &more), Selfoss (Kerið & Ljosafoss Power Station) and Keflavik (Viking World, Duushus Museum, &more). Spend the 13th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. categoryPhrases.sentence.On_the_day_spend_an_exhilarating_day_on_the_slopes_at. The adventure continues: test the waters at a local thermal spa, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, enjoy breathtaking views from Perlan, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja.

Plan my Reykjavik trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Vancouver, Canada to Reykjavik is an approximately 11-hour flight. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Vancouver to Reykjavik due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Vancouver in December, with highs in Reykjavik at 2°C and lows at -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Akureyri.
