Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get a sense of the local culture at The Settlement Center and Hallgrimskirkja. Take a break from the city and head to Hraunfossar and Dive Iceland - Diving and Snorkeling in Iceland - Day Tours. Change things up with these side-trips from Reykjavik: Grindavik (Gunnuhver Hot Springs & Thermal Spas). There's still lots to do: take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, admire the masterpieces at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), examine the collection at The Icelandic Punk Museum, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Reykjavik Open Air Museum.
