Half a day of fun


We start by going to Bessastadir, the White House of Iceland where the sixth president of Iceland lives along with his family. From there, there is only a short drive to the town of lava, vikings and hidden people, Hafnarfjordur. After having a look at viking buildings, hidden people's homes and the elf garden we will head towards the stables where you can enjoy a 1 1/2 hours tour on the beautiful Icelandic horse, in lava covered landscape. After a successful tour where you get well acquainted with the horses,  we will head back to Reykjavik, visiting Perlan Museum, entering an ice cave and taking a stroll around the nature museum before going outside to the 360° viewing deck. Here we also have a chance to enter the Northern Light Planetarium. We will end this tour by going around to the main attractions in Reykjavik such as Hallgrimskirkja, the City Hall, the House of Parliament,  Harpa Conference House, the lovely Sun Voyager and last but not least Hofdi, where the Reykjavik summit was held.

A Recent Review of this tour

Eria was such a wonderful guide. She was very flexible and she took me to so many magical places. The elf garden and the horses were 2 of my most favorite memories of Iceland. So glad I booked this tour.
