There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Hallgrimskirkja, take an in-depth tour of National Museum of Iceland, make a trip to The Pearl (Perlan), and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

For traveler tips, where to stay, photos, and more tourist information, use the Reykjavik itinerary builder.
