Private Sightseeing Tour of Reykjavik City
Get to know Reykjavik on this private sightseeing tour where you visit the many historical sites in and around the city and learn about Iceland's unique and fascinating history. Those wanting an exclusive tour of Iceland's capital should not let this opportunity pass them by.
In downtown Reykjavik, you will see the Parliament House, a classic 19th Century building that houses Iceland's parliament, Alþingi. You will also visit the Government House, which is now occupied by the offices of the prime minister but was originally built as a prison.
No tour of downtown is complete without a visit to Reykjavík's iconic church Hallgrímskirkja, and Harpa, the beautiful concert hall and conference center of Reykjavik. Both buildings were inspired by the basalt landscape of Iceland.
Just a short drive away from the city's center, you'll find the Höfði House, where Ronald Reagan, President of the United States and Mikhail Gorbachev, President of the Soviet Union met during the height of the cold war.
From there it is just a short drive to the biggest outdoor swimming pool in Iceland, Laugardalslaug, and the unique landmark building Perlan which sits on top of old hot water storage tanks located at the top of a large hill.
Just outside the city, on the Álftanes peninsula, you'll find Bessastaðir, the home of the president of Iceland. This small and humble house is in stark contrast to other presidential residences around the world.
