Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Thingvellir National Park and Laugavegur. Step out of the city life by going to Nature & Wildlife Tours and Kayaking & Canoeing. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Galgaklettur (in Thingvellir) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Hallgrimskirkja, shop like a local with Dead Gallery/Studio, examine the collection at Aurora Reykjavik, and look for gifts at Hidden People Iceland.

To see other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Reykjavik trip itinerary maker.
