Greater Reykjavík

The area around the capital encompasses fascinating Reykjavík and its bustling suburbs, Mosfellsbær to the north, Kópavogur, Garðabær and Hafnarfjörður to the south. Plan to base yourself in Reykjavík proper, as that's where the main points of interest are for tourists. It's a beautiful city, surrounded by water on many sides, with an historic centre and loads to do.
