Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Kerið (in Selfoss), Viking World (in Keflavik) and Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir). Next up on the itinerary: surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, and appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager.

To see ratings, photos, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Reykjavik trip maker site.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Reykjavik. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in June, and nighttime lows around 9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Blaskogabyggd.
