DAY 01

Reykjavik Highlights Tour in a Private SUV

  • Reykjavik is known for its colourful houses and it was the home of the first permanent settlements in Iceland. Reykjavik actually means smokey bay since that is what the Viking Ingolfur Arnarson founder of the city first saw, steam rising up from the hot springs when he stepped into the land. It is a small city but what it lacks in size it makes up by its quirkiness and by being interesting and different from most other European cities. It is a great place for foodies since there is a big variety of great restaurants and cafes and the local hotdog stand is one of the most popular food stops.

  • In this tour, your Reykjavik tour guide will take you around the city and show you all of its highlights. The city has a lot to offer and it's perfect for a day excursion with a local guide.
