Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Step off the beaten path and head to Grotta Lighthouse and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). Tales from Iceland and The Settlement Center will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Reykjavik with an excursion to Nature & Wildlife Tours in Selfoss--about 1h 5 min away. And it doesn't end there: get to know the fascinating history of Reykjavik Open Air Museum, indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, pause for some photo ops at The Statue of Leif Eiriksson, and see the interesting displays at Aurora Reykjavik.
