Relax and enjoy the ride to take in the standout sights of this fascinating city, with its arresting architecture, epic Viking past, and volcanic surroundings. From inside The Pearl – the massive glass dome sitting atop huge tanks filled with the natural hot water that heats the city – you’ll enjoy stunning views over the Icelandic capital, the lush landscapes and the mountains looming nearby.

Hear stories and facts about local life from Viking times and today on the drive through Laugardalur (Warm Water Valley). Along the way, spot landmarks such as the popular geothermal swimming pool and the famous Höfði House where Reagan met Gorbachev in 1986.

In the old quarter of Reykjavik, admire the colourful wooden homes that line the narrow streets.
