Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get outdoors at Thingvellir National Park and Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach. Museum-lovers will get to explore National Museum of Iceland and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition.

There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, and explore and take pictures at Perlan.
