side by side. Then its on to the hilltop revolving restaurant Perlan with its 360-degree spectacular views over Reykjavik and beyond. You’ll also get to have a look at Hallgrímskirkja church, the University area and the old town centre where the Icelandic parliament, the Althing is located.
The tour pauses for a break in the city centre where you can stop for lunch (not included in the price) or enjoy a stroll through this quaint quarter of Reykjavik with its narrow streets and unique shops.
After the break, you will join the Golden Circle Afternoon tour

From there your journey continues to the geothermal area that encompasses the hot springs of Geysir and Strokkur and then to the mighty Gullfoss glacial waterfall. Lastly, the tour makes a stop in Hveragerði, the greenhouse village, before returning to the city over the mountain heath Hellisheiði.
