Sightseeing the Capital
This tour includes all of the most significant places within the capital city and surrounding towns, such as the Presidential Residence at Bessastaðir, the Restaurant Perlan and Höfði House, where the all-important summit meeting between President Ronald Reagan and Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev was held in 1986. We also visit the town of Hafnarfjörður, the home of elves and humans alike, as well as a fishing harbor, fish market (when it's open), the beautiful towering Hallgrim's Church, the University district, and the old town center with the Parliament Building and the new City Hall, which is located by a pond filled with birds.
We will also be showing you the sports and recreation area in Laugardalur, a geothermal heated outdoor swimming pool and some of the works of sculptors Ásmundur Sveinsson and Einar Jónsson. Weather and circumstances permitting, we may end up back at the impressive Hallgrim's Church so that our guests may spend some time taking in the magnificent view from the top of the tower, studying the various art displays, and then walk the 10-minute downhill stroll to the city center.
All our guests are dropped off at their hotels, at restaurants of their choice, or at one of 7 geothermal pools and baths in Reykjavík.
This tour includes free entrance to geothermal pools and baths of your choice. Ask your guide for a free entrance ticket.
