Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Step out of Reykjavik with an excursion to Thingvellir National Park in Thingvellir--about 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, take an in-depth tour of Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour.

To find photos, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Reykjavik road trip site .

Hamburg, Germany to Reykjavik is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight; or do a combination of car and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Hamburg to Reykjavik. Prepare for slightly colder weather when traveling from Hamburg in November: high temperatures in Reykjavik hover around 5°C and lows are around 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Borgarbyggd.
