Reykjavik Tour: Everything You Need to Know

Among the first things you should know about the beautiful capital of Iceland is that its weather is famously unpredictable. Yes, the general belief that the country is bound by ice has nothing to do with reality, but you should never forget that Reykjavik is the world's northernmost capital, and this title comes with certain weather conditions. A warm summer day can change into rainy autumn in a matter of several minutes, so make sure to pack for your vacation accordingly. And don't forget to put a pair of comfortable walking shoes in your suitcase! The city offers a lot to explore, and you are going to spend hours admiring its famous sights and looking for hidden gems during your getaway.

Not sure what exactly should you put on your list of must-see's? We have some suggestions to offer. You can start your Reykjavik city tour by visiting the Sun Voyager, a famous Viking ship sculpture — a beautiful symbol of hope and a promise of yet unexplored lands. The next stop of your Reykjavik sightseeing should be the cathedral of Hallgrimskirkja, one of the most well-known sights in the city. This magnificent sanctuary can be visible from almost anywhere in the Icelandic capital as this head-turner is 74.5 m (about 244 ft) high! The Golden Ring is also a great landmark to add to your travel plans. This popular tourist route provides incredible views as well as fantastic photo opportunities.

And, of course, don't forget about the highlight of Reykjavik travel, an unforgettable day trip to the Blue Lagoon, a world-famous geothermal spa located about a 45-minute drive from the city. The waters of this natural wonder are never colder than 37 °C (98.6 °F) and are perfect for treating yourself to a day of unparalleled relaxation.
