Catch all the highlights of the history and culture of Reykjavík, Iceland’s beautiful capital

 On this tour, you will get the highlights of the history and culture of Reykjavík, Iceland’s beautiful capital.

This three-hour long tour takes you to the most important places of Reykjavík, including the famous Hallgrímskirkja church, named after the 17th-century poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson. It is the highest church in Iceland at 74,5 metres high (244 ft.) and it took 41 years to build. Construction began in 1945 and didn’t end until 1986. It additionally houses the largest church organ in Iceland; it has 5275 pipes, is 15 metres high and weighs 25 tons.

Other stops are, for example, Höfði, where the US President Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev President of the Soviet Union met to end the Cold War, and Bessastaðir, the official residence of the Icelandic president located at the beautiful Álftanes peninsula. Bessastaðir was first settled in the year 1000 and has since then been an important place in Iceland. Snorri Sturluson, the author of Snorra-Edda, lived there in the 13th century and later on it became a Royal Fortress and the residence of the Norse King’s highest-ranking officers and officials living in Iceland.

The tour ends at the beautiful Harpa concert hall and conference centre in downtown Reykjavík, which was designed by the Danish firm Henning Larsen Architects in co-operation with Danish-Icelandic artist Ólafur Elíasson.
