Reykjavik Iceland

The planet's most northerly capital offers boundless history, culture and Icelandic charm. Most streets are filled with multi-hued houses which add splashes of colour all over the city. Reykjavik's compactness means it's easy to explore on foot, with a variety of cosy cafés and restaurants serving up traditional dishes like Brauðsúpa – delicious soup poured into a hollowed out loaf of bread.

You can explore the city's Viking origins at The Settlement Exhibition, where ancient ruins combine with digital technology. Other main sights include the towering Hallgrímskirkja Church and the National Museum, which tells the story of the country's foundations and unique culture.

A huge number of excursions run from the city to help travellers experience the best things to do outside of the capital. These include the famous geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, spectacular ice caves, geysers and giant waterfalls.

The main airport is located 50 km outside the city at Keflavik, with many arriving or departing travellers taking a dip in the nearby Blue Lagoon.
