Reykjavik Sightseeing Tour

Come with us on a sightseeing tour in Iceland's capital Reykjavík. The tour travels the greater Reykjavík area going from top attractions to surrounding municipalities, known landmarks and 360 viewing platforms where your guide will tell about interesting facts and stories of Icelandic history and culture.


During this tour you will be able to view the historic building Höfði at Reykjavik's seafront where the all-important summit between former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986, you will come quite close to the Presidential residence at Bessastaðir with its history being a part of Iceland's history since the first inhabitants settled in there. You will get enlightened about the mysterious Huldufólk (Hidden People) living among us, being the Icelandic version of elves with their unpredictable mood. A 360 degrees viewing platform at Perlan offers you a extravagant sightseeing opportunity over Reykjavík and then be able to visit well-known sites in Reykjavík city center like Hallgrímskirkja, with its basalt lava inspired columns design, the Parliament building Alþingi by Austurvöllur square where Icelanders commonly gather whether it is to enjoy a sunny summer day or stand together in unity about political matters.
