Spend a night out with a local in the bustling nightlife of Reykjavík with this excellent night-time tour. This should not be missed by those who want to experience Iceland’s capital through the eyes of someone who lives here.
You will meet your guide downtown at Alþingi, the Icelandic Parliament, which sits right beside the Reykjavík cathedral. They’ll introduce themselves to your group, and you can begin your adventure.
Your guide knows the best venues, the best nights at those venues, and the best deals around town. They will tailor the tour to both their insider knowledge and your desires. They will, however, ensure that you get to try Icelandic delicacies such as hákarl, or fermented shark, if you are daring.
Two free beers of your choosing are included in the tour, and considering the abundance of microbreweries in Iceland, there is a wealth to pick from. Whether you like your ale pale or dark, noxiously powerful or pleasantly mild, your guide will be able to point out the best options. If you don’t like beer, you can opt to have one other free drink instead.
As you hop from one trendy bar to another, you will be shown Icelandic landmarks such as Reykjavík's remarkable concert hall, Harpa, and Reykjavík's famous landmark building, the church Hallgrímskirkja.
Each drinking establishment in Iceland is remarkably different. Some are swanky cocktail bars that ooze class; some are dive bars with a gruff charm; some have great live jazz, or metal, or cabaret; and some are meticulously themed after popular movies, actors and eras.
At 01:00, the tour will reach its official conclusion, and you’ll have a choice; you can either return to your accommodation, satisfied you’ve soaked up enough of this country’s thriving nightlife, or you can dance until the break of dawn (or in the case of midsummer, when 01:00 is dawn, for as long as your feet can support you).
Don’t miss this authentic journey into Reykjavík’s cultural bar scene. Check availability by choosing a date.
If your group wants to stop for a meal, you are welcome to, but this is not included in the price.
