ITINERARY

The Reykjavik sightseeing tour covers the city‘s top attractions, interesting facts, and stories that relate to history and culture in Reykjavik and throughout Iceland. Travelling the Reykjavik area and surrounding municipalities provides an excellent opportunity to discover various things to see or to do in Reykjavik during your stay in Iceland.

On this tour you will visit Perlan glass dome where a 360 viewing platform provides some of the best places for sightseeing in Reykjavik.

After enjoying the spectacular view over Reykjavik city and its surroundings the tour proceeds to go to Reykjavik's seafront to the old Höfði building where an important summit between former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986.

Next stop is Hallgrímskirkja church who's design was inspired by basalt lava columns, a common volcanic rock formation in Icelandic nature. From Hallgrimskirkja church, the tour explores Reykjavik city centre in and around the Parliament building by Austurvöllur which, sometimes is referred to as "the Old town".

Before returning passengers to departure locations, the bus travels through the area of Laugardalur (Hot-spring valley), a major centre for sports and recreation in the capital. The area is home to the city’s largest outdoor thermal swimming pool, a beautiful botanical garden and a small Zoo featuring Icelandic animals, both wild and domesticated.
