Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You'll explore and learn at National Museum of Iceland and Volcano House. Visiting Nature & Wildlife Tours and Haukadalur will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Reykjavik: Gullfoss Falls (in Blaskogabyggd), Bruarfoss Waterfall (in Brekkuskogur) and Thermal Spas (in Grindavik). Next up on the itinerary: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Thingvellir National Park, see the interesting displays at Tales from Iceland, pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, and get engrossed in the history at Saga Museum.

For other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Reykjavik sightseeing planning tool.
