City Sightseeing by Minibus and Golden Circle Express Tour from Reykjavik
US$ 118.37
Overview
Discover Iceland’s city sights by morning, and its waterfalls and geysers by afternoon. This full-day combo tour is a great way to experience Reykjavik and its surrounding sights. Start with a coach tour around urban landmarks like the Bessastadir presidential residence, and then swap the city sights for the natural wonders of Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot springs and UNESCO-listed Thingvellir.
What to Expect
Start with a hotel pickup and then travel into downtown Reykjavik by coach for your city tour. The route takes in places of historical interest as well as some of the modern and quirky sights around the city.
Stop at Bessastadir, the stately residence of Iceland’s president, and then continue to Hofdi House where the historic 1986 summit took place between Ronald Regan and Mikhail Gorbachev. Have your camera ready for the futuristic Perlan restaurant, which is built on tanks containing the city’s hot water supply, and admire Hallgrimskirkja, a Lutheran church that’s one of the country’s tallest buildings.
Other highlights include the geothermal Laugardalur pool with its Sveinsson-designed sculptures, and the nearby harbor town of Hafnarfjordur, home to a mythical community of ‘hidden folk.’
When your morning city tour ends, head out on your express Gullfoss and Geysir excursion that handily takes in Thingvellir, too. Visit the UNESCO World Heritage Site and learn about its ancient parliament that was established there many centuries ago. The spot is also home to the intersection of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates, and your guide will explain the area’s unique geology.
Continue to the thundering waters of Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most impressive falls, and then on to the bubbling hot springs of Strokkur and Geysir.
Your tour then ends with a hotel drop-off back in Reykjavik.
