Learn about Reykjavik’s rich history, fantastic architecture, and fascinating culture on this private driving tour across Iceland’s capital. This small-group, four-hour guided tour takes you to some of the city’s most iconic spots that left a lasting mark on Reykjavik and its residents.

The tour begins when an experienced driver-guide picks you up at your hotel in Reykjavik. 

Your friendly driver is very knowledgeable about Reykjavik. They’ll happily answer all your questions and give a different perspective from someone living in Iceland. Moreover, you can arrange the itinerary to your preferences.

The tour’s first stop can be Perlan, a futuristic museum sporting a dome-shaped design that’s become one of the most popular attractions in Iceland. Perlan is home to some amazing exhibitions showcasing Icelandic nature and how it impacts the country.

One of its biggest attractions is the Ice Cave and Glaciers Exploratorium. This exhibit features the world’s first indoor ice cave, measuring around 328 feet (100 meters) long with roughly 320 tons of snow.

Another popular Perlan exhibit is the Forces of Nature Exhibit. It focuses on four natural phenomena that shaped Iceland over the centuries. These are volcanoes, earthquakes, geysers, and tectonic plates.

You’ll also find a model of the Latrabjarg cliffs inside Perlan. This replica stands about 32 feet (10 meters) tall and features lifelike figures of the birds that you’ll see in the actual Latrabjarg cliffs.

Another important place to visit in Reykjavik is the Grotta Lighthouse. Located inside the Grotta Nature Reserve, the lighthouse was built in 1947. However, the very first lighthouse in Grotta first stood in 1897.

Those interested in wildlife will appreciate the birdlife here and can look out for seals in the waters.

Another favorite stop in this Reykjavik driving tour is the Harpa Concert Hall. Considered a center for Iceland’s cultural and social life, millions have visited Harpa since its opening in 2011.

Moreover, Harpa is the home of the Reykjavik Big Band, the Icelandic Opera, and the Iceland Symphony Orchestra. Aside from world-class performances, Harpa is known for its award-winning architecture.

No Reykjavik tour is complete without visiting the Sun Voyager sculpture. Located by the seaside of central Reykjavik, this magnificent sculpture is made of steel and features curves that become more beautiful when hit by sunlight.

Interestingly, the Sun Voyager is more than a nod to a Viking ship because of its shape. Its sculptor, Jon Gunnar Arnason, noted that his creation also honored the sun and represented "the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress, and freedom."

Before returning to your hotel, you can stop at Hallgrimskirkja Church. This Evangelical-Lutheran church serves as both a parish church and a national sanctuary. It was named after 17th-century clergyman Hallgrimur Petursson and featured a stepped concrete facade to symbolize the Icelandic landscape.

At the end of the tour, the guide will take you back to your hotel or preferred spot in Reykjavik. Of course, these are just a few of the things you can see on this private tour, as you can tailor your itinerary to your interests.

Take advantage of this chance to learn about Reykjavik and its culture and history. Check availability now by choosing a date.
