Explore the city of Reykjavík with this fun-filled walking tour. Those looking for an insider knowledge into this northernmost capital of the world should not let this opportunity pass them by.
This walking tour takes you on foot around Reykjavík in a small group of no more than 12 people. You'll be accompanied by a local guide who was not only born and raised here in Iceland but who has also studied history. The small group size allows the guide to give you his full attention should you want to ask a few questions.
On this tour, you'll walk downhill for just over 2 hours with an indoor stop at Harpa Concert Hall or the City Hall, depending on the weather. You will be led through the historical part of the city, starting at the iconic Hallgrímskirkja church where you will meet your guides by the statue of the Viking, Leifur Eiríksson.
Among the sites you will see are the National Theater, Arnarhóll hill, Austurvöllur main square, the lake Tjörnin, and Grjótaþorp; the oldest neighbourhood in Reykjavík.
En route, your guide will tell you about the history of the city and Iceland. Of course, they will also mention the culture of Iceland, Sagas, elves, cuisine, economy and political structure.
Finally, you will finish at a very nice restaurant which serves authentic Icelandic traditional food. There, you will have traditional Icelandic lamb soup (or a vegan option should you prefer) that is included in the price of the tour.
Children are welcomed to join this tour and walk with the guide for free. However, if you want to include a soup for the little ones, you can add a bowl at a 50% discount during the booking process.
