Experience Reykjavík on foot with local tour guides who are not only real culture and food lovers, but also know all the best secret places hidden within the city. Those wanting to get a first-hand knowledge of the capital of Iceland should book this tour now. 

The tour starts at the dome-shaped building Perlan, which sits on top of the Öskjuhlíð hill. There you will meet your knowledgeable guides who will lead you on a fun-filled walk towards the city centre. Along the way, these local Vikings will tell you stories about the city of Reykjavík and some Icelandic folklore. 

Before you reach the city centre, you will stop to try out one of Iceland's most famous 'delicacies'; fermented shark. To help you swallow a bite of this foul-smelling dish, you will also be given a shot of Brennivín, a caraway flavoured schnapps commonly referred to as "Black Death".

Once you've recovered, you'll head towards one of Reykjavík's oldest streets where you will stop at what is perhaps the city's most unusual museum, the Icelandic Phallological Museum. 

After exploring the museum (and probably giggling the entire time), you'll continue your journey of the city. Your friendly guides will tell you the interesting history of the streets of Reykjavík as you make your way to your next stop, a bakery where you'll get to try some of Iceland's best buns.

While there, you'll have the view of the majestic Hallgrímskirkja church and the statue of Leifur Eiríksson (Leif the Lucky), the famous explorer who is said to have discovered America a few hundred years before Columbus. 

You will then follow the Skólavörðustígur road, walking past the old, and tiny, Icelandic prison. The tour will end at a lovely restaurant where you will be treated to a 2-course dinner and beer tasting.

Get to know Reykjavík with this fantastic tour, explore the country's unique culture and food traditions with friendly, local guides. Taste the food, try the beer, explore strange museums and enjoy the views with this fun-filled walking tour. Check availability by choosing a date.
