This whistle-stop tour lets you admire Reykjavik’s best bits from the comfort of a coach. With just over 110,000 inhabitants, Iceland’s capital is small in size, but big in sights. You’ll start to the east of Reykjavik, where Laugardalur Park showcases botanical gardens and the city’s biggest open-air geothermal pool. Next it’s on to the Pearl – a huge, dome-shaped building, which sits on a hill overlooking the capital. This is the only stop on the tour, and you can hop off to snap some Instagram-worthy photos. Next, you’ll make tracks for the city centre. First on the agenda is Hallgrimskirkja Church – one of the city’s most iconic landmarks, thanks to its white-concrete exterior. You’ll also get to see the glistening Harpa concert hall, which dominates the city’s waterfront. Other highlights include the harbour and a visit to Hofdi House, where President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev took the first steps towards ending the Cold War in 1986.
