Make the most of your day and book this tour that combines Reykjavik‘s top attractions, interesting facts, and stories with the popular Golden Circle tour that showcases some of Iceland's top tourist attractions.
Located in southwest Iceland, Reykjavík is the world’s most northerly capital. Its coastline area is characterized by peninsulas, coves, straits, and islands. Beating heart of culture and life for Icelanders, as well as focal point for tourists, the city has a small but extremely lively centre. Reykjavík's, however, stretches out to its suburbs, with the summer 24-hours light seeping through the residential neighbourhoods. During winter, on the other hand, wind, darkness and snow are the protagonists.Just like day and night, Iceland's capital is filled with contrasts: old versus new, colors versus snow white purity, fervour of a modern city-life versus silence of a frozen landscape. Reykjavík is all this and much more, part of which is yet to be discovered as the Sun Voyager, the dreamboat sculpture weighing anchor toward freedom and future, simbolically communicates.
During summer, whale watching, sea-fishing, horse-back-riding and day trips are the most popular activities, while during winters the magic vision of the Northern Lights is the background for shows, exhibitions and festivitiesAlthough the city centre is very small, the cultural spots of a large European capital are not missing: from cafes and restaurants, to quirky shops, geothermal pools and museums. The National Museum of Iceland provides an insight into the past and the culture of the country, while the Vikin Maratime Museum focuses on its naval history. If art is your cup of tea, then you can't miss the National Gallery of Iceland.Landmark buildings shape the skyline of the city, such as the hemispherical structure of the Perlan, the majesting Harpa, reflecting on the water, as well as the dreamy construction of Hallgrímskirkja, a Lutheran parish church, the biggest in Iceland.Pubs, clubs and bars are the set of Friday-night revelries, another distinguishing feature of the capital that reveal the youngest facade and you certainly don't want to miss.
