Cycle through the wonderful city sites of Reykjavík. This tour should not be missed by those who are looking for an active, immersive and exciting way to explore Iceland's capital city.

You will meet your guide at Ægisgarður 7 near Reykjavík's Old Harbour, where you'll be provided with your helmet and bicycle. Once you've received a quick briefing, you'll mount up and set off.

The whole city is at your fingertips from the back of a bike; most of the sites are concentrated around the centre, and you will get to see them all. Right by the harbour, for example, is Harpa Concert Hall, a feat of modern architecture with some of the best sound engineering in the world.

As you move into the downtown area, you'll see the city's humble cathedral beside its parliament, the Alþingi; you might see a protest going on here, as Icelanders love a good demonstration. This is, in fact, the world's longest-running parliament that is ongoing; Icelanders founded in as far back as 930 AD, although in Þingvellir. It moved to Reykjavík in the 1800s.

You will then see sites such as Tjörnin, the downtown pond with a lot more history than it seems, and Reykjavík City Hall. The style of architecture of this building is as divisive in Reykjavík as the pyramid of the Louvre is in Paris.

You will see the mighty church of Hallgrímskirkja from a distance, the iconic cathedral that sits upon the hill Skólavörðuhæð in central Reykjavík. We recommend you go there after the tour and spend some time going up in the elevator to the viewing platform in the tower.

As you travel around Reykjavík, you will see beautiful nature, such as Faxaflói Bay, Mount Esja, the Bláfjöll mountain range, and, in clear weather, the Reykjanes and Snæfellsnes Peninsulas. You will also see a wealth of street-art and sculptures.

After two and a half hours of exploring and sightseeing, you will return to drop your bike back off at the harbour.

Keep active and witness the greatest sites of Reykjavík. Check availability by choosing a date.
