Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Get some historical perspective at Hallgrimskirkja and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar). Museum-lovers will appreciate National Museum of Iceland and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Thingvellir National Park (in Thingvellir) and Gullfoss Falls (in Blaskogabyggd). And it doesn't end there: take in panoramic vistas at Perlan, expand your horizons at Skumaskot, stop by Metal Design, and appreciate the history behind Sun Voyager.

To find traveler tips, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, read our Reykjavik vacation maker.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Keflavik International Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 47°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
