Itinerary

 


We visit the residence of the president of Iceland at Bessastađir as well as Hafnarfjörđur, a town where elves, - the “hidden people” and humans live together in harmony. In Hafnarfjöđur we also visit the old fishing harbor.

In Reykjavik we visit Perlan, the Pearl, a famous landmark in the city which is built on top of hot water tanks that hold the city’s hot water supply.

After enjoying the spectacular view over Reykjavík and its surroundings from Perlan we go to Höfđi house where the all-important summit meeting of former U.S. President Ronald Reagan and former U.S.S.R. Secretary General Mikhail Gorbachev took place in 1986. This meeting marks the beginning of the end of the cold war.

We also visit Hallgrímskirkja church and the old town centre where the Icelandic parliament, Alţingi, and the City Hall are situated.
