Experience Reykjavik's vibrant culture and rich history on a private walking tour with a knowledgeable Viking guide. Those eager to learn more about Iceland's capital city before enjoying authentic local food should book this tour now. 

The tour starts at the meeting point in Ingolfur Square, in the center of Reykjavik. Here you'll meet an expert tour guide who'll show your group around the city.

A walking tour is an excellent way to get to know a new city, so this would be a perfect first-day activity for your group. This private tour lets you ask as many questions as you like and get a more personal experience. A private tour can be easily customized so you can choose when you wish to start and how much time you spend in each place.

Touring Reykjavik with a Viking guide helps to bring the history of Iceland to life and is an enjoyable experience for the whole family. During the tour, you'll visit some of the highlights of Reykjavik's city center, and your guide will show you some of the lesser-known local spots that tend to be overlooked by tourists.

One of the most exciting stops is a Viking house built in 874 AD by Ingolfur Arnason, a Norwegian Viking. The house is a marker of the beginning of Icelandic settlement, and your guide will tell you more about the country's early settlers.

You'll also visit Reykjavik's Old Harbor, a bustling port in the city's heart that offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains and sea. The harbor is the departure point for whale-watching tours, fishing trips, and ferry rides to nearby islands, but it's also home to numerous restaurants, cafes, and bars. 

Other tour highlights include the Harpa Concert Hall, the main shopping street Laugavegur, Hallgrimskirkja church, Tjornin pond, and the Parliament building. You'll get a fantastic overview of the city's highlights and can take many photos as you explore.

After around two hours of walking, your guide will lead you to a local restaurant to indulge in traditional Icelandic food. You'll get an hour-long food experience and will have the chance to learn about Icelandic food culture in a hands-on way.

Once you've finished your meal, you can continue sightseeing or return to your Reykjavik accommodation. 

Enjoy this exciting experience, exploring Iceland's capital city and eating traditional food with a Viking guide. Check availability now by choosing a date.
