Reykjavik

— 17 nights
Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital, effortlessly combines small-town charm with heaps of big city energy.
Creative Iceland has been added to your itinerary. Relax by the water at Ytri Tunga Beach and Nautholsvik Geothermal Beach. National Museum of Iceland and Landnámssýningin/The Settlement Exhibition will appeal to museum buffs. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Reykjavik: Blaskogabyggd (Haukadalur & Gullfoss Falls), Thingvellir (Galgaklettur, Thingvellir National Park, &more) and Strokkur (in Geysir). Spend the 17th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: test the waters at a local thermal spa, explore the world behind art at Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar), look for all kinds of wild species at Dive Iceland - Diving and Snorkeling in Iceland - Day Tours, and see Off-Road Tours.

For other places to visit, photos, more things to do, and tourist information, use the Reykjavik day trip planning site.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Reykjavik is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Amsterdam to Reykjavik. In August, Reykjavik is slightly colder than Amsterdam - with highs of 16°C and lows of 9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) early enough to travel back home.

Capital Region travel guide

Churches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Nightlife
The capital region of the world's northernmost capital city, Reykjavik, boasts colorful buildings, lots of personality, and a rich culture. Forget skyscrapers and traffic jams in Iceland's biggest city. Instead, you can experience provincial charm in an urban setting. Peoplewatch while sipping coffee at a cafe, check out the local art scene, and stay up late enjoying this destination's thriving nightlife. Most Icelandic trips begin in this region because it houses the capital and several natural attractions. If you don't have time to explore the diverse landscapes across this country, visit local sites to view a land shaped by glacial activity, earthquakes, and volcanic eruptions.
