Reykjavik

Reykjavik ©
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Attractions like Hallgrimskirkja and Nature & Wildlife Tours make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Reykjavik's surroundings by going to Thermal Spas (in Grindavik) and Thingvellir (Galgaklettur & Thingvellir National Park). Next up on the itinerary: indulge in some culinary diversions at a local gastronomic tour, appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager, get outside with Outdoor Activities, and steep yourself in history at Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition.

For more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Reykjavik planner.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Reykjavik is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 4 hours traveling from Dubai to Reykjavik. In December, Reykjavik is much colder than Dubai - with highs of 2°C and lows of -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) to allow time to drive to Geysir.
