Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition, and take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland.

For where to stay, more things to do, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Reykjavik trip planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Reykjavik is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central European Standard Time (CET) to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) is minus 1 hour. Plan for slightly colder temperatures traveling from Amsterdam in March, with highs in Reykjavik at °C and lows at °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Skogar.
