The view from the top of Hallgrímskirkja church, sitting atop the Skólavörðuholt hill, above downtown Reykjavík, draws hundreds of visitors every day. So, it stands to reason, that if you could ascend just that much higher the view would be even more spectacular. The tour company Extreme Iceland did just that with the help of an aerial drone, capturing this amazing 360°view of Reykjavík as seen several hundred feet from above the statue of Ingólfur Arnarson.

The view to the north west, down Skólavörðustígur street, out towards the harbour and the sunset out on Faxaflói bay is particularly beautiful. This must have been a beautiful autumn day in Reykjavík.
