As we are experts in customizing itineraries to suit your personal interests, time available and budget, we at Goway are at your service!

Reykjavik is the capital and largest city in Iceland with a population of around 200,000. It is home to the vast majority of Iceland's inhabitants, and the centre of the country's cultural scene.

The city centre is compact and very walkable, filled of different styles of colourful houses. This is also an excellent town for shopping, dining or drinking. When it started to develop as a town in the 18th century, Reykjavík had already been inhabited for almost a thousand years. It was one of the very first settlements in Iceland.

During your stay, you will take a half day tour to explore the city's highlights, including the Pearl, a dome-shaped landmark building located on top of a hill with great views of Reykjavik, the colourful harbour neighborhood with its charming houses, restaurants and cafes, the Hallgrimskirkja Church, which houses an observation tower beneath its modern facade, the Parliament and the Cathedral.

There is also a free day to explore more of the city, or take an optional excursion into Iceland's majestic countryside.

    This lovely hotel is a modern former office building, and therefore quite different from most other Guldsmeden properties, which are typically turn-of-the-century European. Here, bohemian style and unstructured maximalism translates into a modern environment! Classic Guldsmeden design touches thrive with a more modern approach, and Eyja is a lovely example of the natural progression of the Guldsmeden Hotels style. Eyja Guldsmeden is located in the up-and-coming downtown Reykjavik area, with a fantastic view over the city and views of Esja Mountain. With lots of cosy cafés and shops right around the corner, Eyja Guldsmeden serves as an excellent base of operations during your time in Iceland's capital city.
