The Landmannalaugar tour takes you from Reykjavik up to the interior highlands of Iceland to the Landmannalaugar area, often referred to as “The Pearl of the Central Highlands” on a day trip experiencing nature at its finest.
This is a short tour that shows you the new lava from the ongoing eruption in Fagradalsfjall. The lava flow has reached the lower ground, so it is now easily accessible by foot and no hiking experience is needed.
Located in southwest Iceland, Reykjavík is the world’s most northerly capital. Its coastline area is characterized by peninsulas, coves, straits, and islands.
Beating heart of culture and life for Icelanders, as well as focal point for tourists, the city has a small but extremely lively centre. Reykjavík's, however, stretches out to its suburbs, with the summer 24-hours light seeping through the residential neighbourhoods. During winter, on the other hand, wind, darkness and snow are the protagonists.
Just like day and night, Iceland's capital is filled with contrasts: old versus new, colors versus snow white purity, fervour of a modern city-life versus silence of a frozen landscape. Reykjavík is all this and much more, part of which is yet to be discovered as the Sun Voyager, the dreamboat sculpture weighing anchor toward freedom and future, simbolically communicates.
During summer, whale watching, sea-fishing, horse-back-riding and day trips are the most popular activities, while during winters the magic vision of the Northern Lights is the background for shows, exhibitions and festivities
Although the city centre is very small, the cultural spots of a large European capital are not missing: from cafes and restaurants, to quirky shops, geothermal pools and museums.
The National Museum of Iceland provides an insight into the past and the culture of the country, while the Vikin Maritime Museum focuses on its naval history. If art is your cup of tea, then you can't miss the National Gallery of Iceland.
Landmark buildings shape the skyline of the city, such as the hemispherical structure of the Perlan, the majesting Harpa, reflecting on the water, as well as the dreamy construction of Hallgrímskirkja, a Lutheran parish church, the biggest in Iceland.
Pubs, clubs and bars are the set of Friday-night revelries, another distinguishing feature of the capital that reveal the youngest facade and you certainly don't want to miss.
