Reykjavik's capital area consists of seven municipalities with approximately 200,000 inhabitants. With plenty of space, clean air and natural green energy, it is renowned as one of the most modern, forward-thinking European societies. The city's logo is Pure Energy, and pure energy is central to Reykjavik's heating, nightlife and culture.

Begin your tour of the world's northernmost capital with a scenic drive to Reykjavík's largest outdoor swimming pool in Laugardalur, which is heated with water from natural hot springs under the city. From Laugardalur, you will have a short drive to the Arbaer Open Air Museum, where more than 20 buildings have been relocated from around Iceland represented in the form of a town square, a village and farm.

Continue on to the Hofdi House for a brief photo stop at this historical landmark, "end of the cold war" which commemorates the site of the meeting in 1986 between President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev. Next, you will proceed to the National Museum with it's impressive displays that provides insight into Icelandic cultural history.

Your final stop is at the Pearl vantage-point, which makes for some great photo opportunities. Built in 1988, the Pearl is a remarkable building; unique in Iceland and probably the entire world. Its glass dome was constructed atop huge tanks and stores natural hot water for heating the city. The Pearl offers spectacular views of the capital area and beyond.

Your tour concludes as you return to the ship through the harbor area.
