Frequently Asked Questions

About Culture Tours in Iceland

Culture tours allow you to get to know Iceland’s history, folklore, cuisine, nightlife and art scene. They are conducted largely in Reykjavík and Akureyri, although there are many options which will introduce you to smaller and lesser-known settlements.

1. What are the most popular culture tours available in Iceland?

The most popular culture tours are walking tours of Reykjavík’s attractions, as well as food tasting and beer drinking tours.

2. Is it best to reserve a spot on a culture tour prior to arrival in Iceland?

It is always advised to book beforehand in order to secure your spot and avoid disappointment.

3. What language will the guide speak on a culture tour?

Most tours are conducted in English, but certain walking and bus tours will have options for guidance in another language.

4. Which sites are visited on the Game of Thrones location tour?

You will visit Þingvellir National Park, a settlement era Viking lodge in Þjórsárdalur valley and Fákasel horse park.

5. Can I drink alcohol before or during the tour?

Generally, no. In fact, tour operators reserve the right to turn away anyone they suspect of being intoxicated. However, if you are taking part in a food and beer tasting tour, drinking alcohol is an essential part of the experience. 

6. Can I participate in a beer tour with the locals if I just turned 18?

No, you must be at least 20-years-old to purchase alcohol in Iceland.

7. Do I need to bring my passport on the tour?

No, it is not necessary to bring your passport, as long as you provide evidence of your booking.

8. Can I combine a walking tour with the Golden Circle sightseeing tour?

It might be possible to undertake a culture tour in the evening and a Golden Circle sightseeing tour afterwards, or vice versa. Contact your tour operator to find out your options.

9. Is there a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus that operates around Iceland?

Not across the whole of Iceland, but in Reykjavík there is a fleet of double-decker buses that routinely circle the city's main attractions.

10. Where is the meeting point for the walking tours in Reykjavik?

There are a number of different meeting points in Reykjavík, depending on the travel company you choose. Contact your tour operator directly to find out the specific meeting point.

11. Does the Reykjavik City Card provide discounts for culture tours?

While allowing free entrance to the city’s many museums and art spaces, the Reykjavík City Card only provides discounts on specific activities provided by Reykjavik Bike & Segway Tours.

Wandering Seltjarnarnes | Nature Hike | Eco Tour

Fun, informative and scenic tour of a quieter, less touristic side of Reykjavik. The guide, David, was a true professional with a wealth of information about Iceland, the history of Reykjavik and the local bird and sea life. The whole tour felt like you were walking where very few tourists have gone before and I enjoyed the peace and serenity of the landscape. I highly recommend this tour for both locals and tourists! See a side of Reykjavik you haven't seen before.

Excellent. The price is fantastic, especially considering it includes the ability to use the city bus. We purchased the three-day pass and it paid for itself within the first 24 hours easily. Between the museums, swimming pools, and bus trips we had a great time in Reykjavik & would highly recommend purchasing the city pass to anyone visiting!

It was amazing! The tour was informative and covers a lot of places in such a short period amount of time but we didn’t feel rushed at all. Thorstenn was very helpful, funny and informative!

We went on the bus at Hallgrimachurch and since we also had rented a car, we sat on the bus all way to see what did we want to see more of and the historie stories is great to listen to. I will say this is a must when you want to know as mush as possible without looking in all the books you find. Great tour!

The 72 hour card was a great choice! Just the savings on transportation would have made it worthwhile, but entry to the pools and museums made it even better! In between visiting local attractions, we just picked a random bus to jump on to see where it would take us and see what we could see. It was wonderful! Paid for itself ten times over! I highly recommend purchasing one from Guide to Iceland as the pickup location is very centralized and easy to find. I purchased mine online in Canada and had no problem finding the Guide to Iceland desk in Reykjavik to retrieve my pass.

The Reykjavik city card was awesome! We really love to explore things on our own, as opposed to structured tours, and the city card gave us the ability to do that because of access to the city buses, especially since renting a car to get around is frowned upon in the middle of winter! We got around the city very easily and explored everything that we wanted to see! Given then price of bus tickets alone, the city card more than pays for itself and we were able to visit some of the museums and the thermal pools to wind down at the end of long travel days!

Incredible taste of a primal country. From waterfalls and geysirs to lava flows and glaciers, a land of extremes and pure primal timeless beauty. A truly once in a lifetime experience. Skilled guides do all the driving and let you take it all in. Long soak in blue lagoon after was just the right ending. Highly recommended!

Golden Circle, Kerid Crater, and Farm visit | Small Group & Free Ice Cream

It was a great tour and our guide Haukur was excellent. He provided us with more than enough time to enjoy the views and take pictures as well. He made extra stops and made sure to drop us off where we can see the best views. The weather was quite good despite the winter cold. Our ride was awesome as well, plain black new M. Benz minibus. And lastly, free delicious ice cream at a local dairy farm topped off our amazing tour. Salted caramel was the best. Tour was on 12 Nov 17
