Immerse yourself in the cityscapes of Iceland’s capital, Reykjavík, before visiting the incredible spa known as the Blue Lagoon. This tour is an excellent way to introduce yourself to the town and Iceland in general.

The tour begins when you are picked up in Reykjavík for the sightseeing component of your trip. There are many incredible locations in the capital city to get to today, that your experienced guide will tell you about in detail.

You will, for example, get to visit the viewing points atop Perlan, a hilltop restaurant surrounded by a forest in the city itself, and Hallgrímskirkja, the church that dominates the skyline.

You’ll see the Sun Voyager artwork and feel the spirit of adventure that was sculpted into it, and the historic Höfði House, where the seeds to end the Cold War were first planted. Of course, the modern concert hall Harpa is also on your agenda.

While these are the most known sites in Reykjavík, you will also visit lesser-known places, such as Tjörnin Pond, the Presidential Residence, and the harbours of both Reykjavík and the adjacent town of Hafnafjörður.

Once you have thoroughly explored this marvellous, cultural capital, you will board the second bus, and be whisked across the Reykjanes Peninsula to the Blue Lagoon. This route, which you may have admired on your drive from the airport, is renowned for its dramatic lava landscapes and many cone-shaped volcanoes.

The Blue Lagoon is a top tourist destination in Iceland for very good reasons. It’s azure, warm waters are unlike any other in the world, filled with unique algae and minerals, and are said to have healing properties. This claim is also made of the silica masks you can apply on site for free, and the many other treatments you can purchase here.

Please note that the price of this tour only covers the transfer costs of getting you to the lagoon; you will have to buy your ticket separately. It is heavily recommended to do this weeks in advance, as available spaces tend to fill up very quickly.

Once you have thoroughly enjoyed the lagoon, you can take a bus back to the capital. These buses run every hour, so feel free to truly relax and enjoy your time.
