On this tour we visit the Icelandic presidential residence of Bessastadir which was built between 1761 and 1766 in the most picturesque of locations.

In Reykjavik we visit the beautiful Perlan Restaurant, which has been built on the six water tanks which used to hold the city’s hot water supply. After enjoying the spectacular views over Reykjavík and its surroundings from the top of Perlan we will visit Hofdi, the house where the all-important summit between the former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and the former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986.

From here we go to see the University of Iceland and the Harpa Reykjavik Concert Hall, a new and unique building which is a significant icon in the city. It had its grand opening in the spring of 2011. We will also visit the tallest building in Iceland, the Hallgrimskirkja church which was designed by the state architect Gudjon Samuelsson, inspired by the mountains and glaciers of Iceland. We view the older part of the town centre where we will find the House of Icelandic Parliament known as Althingi, built in1881, and the modern City Hall. The City Hall (Ráðhús Reykjavíkur is located beside Reykjavikurtjorn and the design is quite unique.
