Climb the Tower at Hallgrimskirkja

Hallgrimskirkja

Great birds eye view of Reykjavik! And who doesn't love a statue of Lief Erickson?

Just a part of something to do while in Reykjavik. There is an epic church that stands out strong against the skyline. 

Inside the church there is an impressive organ inside of the church. Most importantly about the church is the clock tower, and the birds eye view of Reykjavik in 360 degree views. It does cost 8 dollars to climb it, but there was nobody checking tickets when we went. The elevator takes you up the majority of the way and then about 3 or 4 flights of stairs after that.

Worth it

I was only in Iceland for 30 hours but I stopped by. It's a pretty church, and the view from the tower is pretty good. Was a little underwhelmed though. Wasn't a very impressive church, but maybe I'm just picky.
