The history and architecture of Reykjavik await your discovery on this comprehensive half-day adventure that takes in all of this capital city's top attractions. Your comfortable motorcoach takes a scenic route to the Árbær Open-Air Museum, where you'll stroll among beautifully preserved Icelandic heritage homes for a glimpse into the past. Resume your drive past Reykjavík's largest outdoor swimming pool and the sculpture garden adjacent to the Asmundur Sveinsson Museum. Pass the Höfði House, where Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev took steps to end the Cold War. Next, stop to visit The Pearl, a magnificent glass-dome structure with a viewing deck that showcases 360-degree city vistas. Complete your drive with some sights of the city center, including the City Hall, a bold modern structure that was specifically designed to attract bird-life.

Special Notes:

Kindly note that the running order of visited sites might vary. Iceland Travel reserves the right to run this tour in a reverse order if considered necessary; this could be due to local traffic conditions or in order to avoid congestion at the main sites. Not all coaches in Iceland are equipped with air conditioning, but they do have overhead blowers. Most motorcoaches can accommodate a small number of collapsible wheelchairs in the baggage space under the coach (depending on the capacity of the vehicle), but it is always best to check with Iceland Travel in advance of the call to make sure this is the case. Please note that motorcoaches are filled to approximately 85% of their full capacity. According to the municipality, coaches and very large vehicles are no longer allowed to drive in some areas in the heart of the city. Iceland Travel reserves the right to drive each route for which is allowed at the time, or if roads are closed due to construction etc…


Tour timeline may vary to avoid overcrowding, etc.
