Private 2 Hour Reykjavik Sightseeing Adventure with Perlan, Grotta & Hallgrimskirkja
Explore the Northernmost capital in the world on this customisable sightseeing tour of Reykjavík, where you visit the most iconic city landmarks in a private vehicle with a local guide. If you’re looking to experience Iceland’s capital personally, this excursion is the perfect bet.
Your urban adventure begins as you get picked up at, or near, your accommodation in Reykjavík. You will meet your professional local driver guide and begin your expedition of the city. First up is Perlan, a unique and monumental building, consisting of a rotating modern glass dome built on top of six massive hot water storage tanks.
Next up is the golden sand-strip of Nauthólsvík, located right by the campus of the Reykjavík University. The beach rests within a barricaded bay and utilises geothermal energy to heat up the freezing waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. If the weather is nice, go for a refreshing dip.
Then, you will get back in the car and make your way across a protected inner-city swampland, reaching the campus of the University of Iceland. Its main building is one of the most iconic in the city, allegedly deemed too beautiful by British Troops to be seized during the war.
After this dose of culture, it’s time to enjoy some nature, as your next stop will be at the black beach Grótta at the city’s western edge. Stretch your legs and visit the old lighthouse, as you enjoy the sweeping seaside view around you, to the mountains on the other side of the bay.
After having basked in the tranquillity of this beautiful area, you’ll make your way to the buzzing city centre, seeing sights such as the City Hall, the Tjörnin Pond, Harpa Concert Hall and the scenic Old Harbour, amongst others.
Your tour will end at the top of Skólavörðuhæð Hill, where the prodigious Hallgrímskirkja Church watches over the city, serving as its most prominent and iconic landmark building.
