You will be picked up from your hotel/ guesthouse and taken on guided coach tour for a Reykjavik Sightseeing Tour .
The tour will visit the following places:
• Reykjavík City Centre :Small yet vibrant, the City Centre allows for easy navigation by foot.
• The Harbour: The city's northern waterfront is a popular area, with a beautiful view of Reykjavik's landmark mountain, Mt. Esja. The striking sculpture Sun Voyager by Jon Gunnar Arnason, a massive steel creation made to resemble a Viking ship, is located here.
• Hallgrímskirkja Church: Hallgrimskirkja church is Reykjavik's main landmark and its tower can be seen from almost everywhere in the city. Hallgrimskirkja is the largest church in Iceland.
• The Pearl: The Pearl (Perlan) is a remarkable building, built in 1988, unique in Iceland and probably in the whole world.

The dome also houses a café, while around the outside is a viewing platform with panoramic 360 degree views of the city and its surroundings.
