Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Do your shopping at Laugavegur and Hidden People. Popular historic sites such as Hallgrimskirkja and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition are in your itinerary. Change things up with a short trip to Thermal Spas in Grindavik (about 46 minutes away). There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Iceland, buy something for everyone on your list at Bonus, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and admire the masterpieces at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar).
