Our Costa cruise around the northern capitals takes us to Reykjavik, the capital of Iceland, and a splendid example of a town perfectly immersed in nature.

Reykjavik is an absolute “must” when you visit Iceland. It was once called the “smoky bay”, owing to the hot springs located near to the port of Reykjavik. You can admire Lake Tjörnin, right in the centre of the city, an emblem of harmony with nature which is typical of this locality. Spend some time visiting the Icelandic capital's sculpture garden, then explore the park within it, where nature reigns supreme. Here, you will find an outdoor museum with the reconstruction of a small ancient village.

Not to be missed:

• Elliðaárdalur open-air museum
