What You Can Expect

Reykjavik Sightseeing and Blue Lagoon Tour

View over Reykjavik, Iceland

Begin your day with a hotel pickup and travel into Reykjavik by coach. The route on your city tour takes in the Icelandic capital’s historical sites along with many modern landmarks.

Admire Bessastadir, the statuesque residence of Iceland’s president, and then head onward to Hofdi House where the historic 1986 summit took place between Mikhail Gorbachev and Ronald Regan. Get your camera poised for snaps of the futuristic Perlan restaurant — built on tanks containing the city’s hot water supply — and gaze skyward at the Lutheran church of Hallgrimskirkja, one of the country’s tallest buildings.

Other highlights include the Sveinsson-designed sculptures at Laugardalur geothermal pool, and the neighboring port town of Hafnarfjordur, where a mythical community of ‘hidden folk’ are believed to live.

When your morning Reykjavik tour ends, head out on your afternoon trip to the Blue Lagoon. When you arrive, your time is your own to kick back and relax. Take a leisurely stroll around the water to take photos, or head straight into the lagoon to bathe and let the warm natural spring soothe your muscles and release stress. You can even indulge in a spa treatment, if you wish.

Your excursion then ends with a hotel drop-off back in Reykjavik.

Great tour around Reykjavik, it was a nice way to see the less centralized parts of the city and hear about the history. Our tour guide was very friendly and my husband and I had a very nice conversation with him. Blue Lagoon was also great! The staff there was very friendly and it was a relaxing way to spend our afternoon after touring around Reykjavik.

This tour enabled us to see parts of Reykjavik which were more outlying and not within walking distance. As ever the tour guides were brilliant sharing their knowledge with us. Some amazing view points of the city. The blue lagoon element was fantastic- you require to pre-book anyway so this was a great way to do that. This is a must for anyone visiting Iceland- stunning.

The tour of Reykjavik is at a nice and leisurely pace - saw the highlights and parts of the city that I had not been or wasn't able to walk to. The real highlight is the Blue Lagoon - amazing!! Was there on a very cold day, so the first walk outside was a little brisk. But that is completely solved by getting into the warm water of the lagoon. Even if you don't take this tour, you should definitely find your way to Blue Lagoon!!

These were two different tours for one price. Our tour guide Ragna was such a friendly lady, full of information and always willing to answer questions. Having spent the day before walking around Reykavik this tour showed us places we had been unable to get to on foot, so it was definitely worth going on. One such place was The Pearl, which provided an excellent view of Reykavik from its panoramic viewing walkway gallery. Its cold up there so wrap up.
Everybody I saw enjoyed the Blue Lagoon it was an amazing and different experience. The flexible departure times were extremely useful.
If you have time then go to the Blue Lagoon, if you dont, make time! you wont regret or forget it. This is definitely a 5 place to visit.

Bring a towel and sandals to the Blue Lagoon because it is expensive to rent.

This tour was very good. We got to see the highlights of Reykjavik with a knowledgeable guide. We stopped at several of the sights so we could experience them close up and take photos if we wanted to. Excellent! Blue Lagoon is something you don't want to miss. It is just so different from other sights !

This tour was AMAZING. Our guide was extremely personable, knowledgeable, and well spoken - and full of interesting facts! This was the perfect way to get a taste of Reykjavik in the morning, and get to experience the must-see Blue Lagoon in the afternoon. Bus pickup/dropoff were a breeze, too!
