Reykjavik City Tour

In the morning, you have breakfast and you meet your private driver-guide at the hotel lobby and go on a wonderful 3-hour city tour around the most significant places in Reykjavik and the nearby area.

During the tour, you stop by the official residence of the President of Iceland, called Bessastadir. Then you go to the Hafnarfjordur - a scenic port town and municipality, located about 10 km (6.2 mi) from Reykjavik. This place is known as the home of the "Hidden people" Huldufolk, featured in local folklore and meaning "elves" in the Icelandic language.

Then you proceed to the futuristic Perlan dome from which you admire the spectacular views over Reykjavik and its surroundings. You make a stop at the Hofdi, the building where the summit between the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986.

Then on to the Hallgrimskirkja Church, the tallest building in Iceland where you have a chance to walk up the stairs to enjoy the view of the city center (entrance tickets are not included).

Golden Circle Tour

Next morning, you join a group for a fascinating 8-hour tour around the Golden Circle. The first highlight of your day trip is visiting the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site -  the Thingvellir National Park. The national pride of the country, the park boasts a unique historical significance as it is the place where the oldest existing parliament in the world (first assembled in 930 AD!) is set. The “Althing” was held there for almost 9 centuries, until 1800.

However, history is not the only fascinating thing about this place, attracting thousands of visitors to this unique land. Being part of a fissure zone that runs through picturesque Iceland, the Thingvellir area is a fantastic lava arena, located in a rift valley, formed between the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates. This marvelous place is a visual representation of continental drift! The area also features the largest natural lake in Iceland - breathtaking Thingvallavatn, surrounded by lava flows and lush vegetation.

After that, you stop by the picturesque Gullfoss - one of the most beautiful and popular waterfalls in Iceland. Your next destination is the Geysir area, boasting numerous hot springs, mud pools, and geysers, including Strokkur, the world's most active geyser.

After the tour, you return to your Reykjavik hotel for overnight.
