Tour Highlights

City of Reykjavík

Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. It has a latitude of 64°08' N, making it the world's northernmost capital. With a population of around 120,000, it is the heart of Iceland's cultural, economic and governmental activity. It is among the cleanest, greenest, and safest cities in the world.

Faxaflói Bay

Faxaflói is a bay in southwest Iceland, between the peninsulas of Snæfellsnes and Reykjanes. Reykjavík is situated on its southern shore. Faxaflói has been a source of nourishment of the people living on its shores where fishermen went out in small boats to fish for dinner.


Viðey is the largest island of Kollafjörður Bay in Iceland, near the capital of Reykjavík. The island has archaeological remains dating back to the early 10th century, and was the site where the "father of Reykjavík" Skúli Magnússon constructed his home and a church in the 12th century.

"So good!"

We went on two tours with Reykjavík Sightseeing - The Golden Circle and South Coast - and everything was amazing! Very professional and sweet guides, great selection of tours, easy pick-up options and beautiful scenery (of course). Would definitely recommend!

"Northern Lights"

Elizabeth and the bus driver who’s name I did not catch were amazing tour guides. They were both very personable and made a great team. Elizabeth has such an outgoing personality and was able to make the trip super exciting, even though seeing the lights was not a guarantee. We were about to call it a night when the lights came out to give us a beautiful show.

"Great tour, great tour company"

We took the Golden Circle plus Secret Lagoon tour, it was the perfect day trip and Alex our tour guide was fantastic. Learnt a lot about what we were seeing but also lots of other nuggets about Iceland. They even made a few unscheduled extra stops to show us other sights and to let us get out and take photos of the incredible sunrise.
