Reykjavik

Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Bring the kids along to Horseback Riding Tours and Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach. Step out of the city life by going to Krysuvik and Langjokull Glacier. And it doesn't end there: admire all the interesting features of Geothermal area krysuvik, see the interesting displays at The Icelandic Punk Museum, see some colorful creatures with Dive Iceland - Diving and Snorkeling in Iceland - Day Tours, and appreciate the history behind The Statue of Leif Eiriksson.
