Reykjavik City Tour & Northern Lights Seeking

In the morning after breakfast you meet your private driver-guide at the hotel lobby and go on an amazing 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. Your next stop is Hafnarfjörður - a port town and municipality located about 10 km from Reykjavik. This place is known as the home of the "Hidden people" Huldufolk from local folklore, meaning elves in Iclandic.

Then you proceed to the futuristic Perlan dome from which you see spectacular views over Reykjavik and its surroundings.

You make a stop at Hofdi, the building where the all-important 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 that is the tallest building in Iceland where you have a chance to walk up the stairs to see the view of the city center (entrance tickets are not included).

Another place you see today is the Althing building - a classical 19th-century building which is home to the Icelandic parliament's main debating chamber. In the evening, together with your private driver-guide, you set off on a 4-hour Northern Lights mystery tour.

Today you have the chance to see the Northern Lights flashing across the sky in brilliant patterns and learn all about the Aurora Borealis.

After the tour you return to your hotel and have a free evening.
