Our Reykjavik walking tour is your introduction to our country. It will help you get your bearings and make the most of your stay in Iceland. We recommend it as your first stop in Reykjavik (well, maybe check into your accommodation and drop your bags off first).

Our family-friendly tour brings the history of Iceland to life with exciting stories and Icelandic mythology. 

We’ll visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center, such as Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavik Harbour, Hallgrímskirkja Church (we’ll teach you how to pronounce that), Reykjavik Pond and the Parliament building.  

But, we’ll also share hidden, local spots with you like a visit to an Elf home; things you’d miss if you didn’t know what to look for.

We want you to feel the unique, friendly atmosphere of our quirky little city, not just to see the most popular tourist attractions. We’ll even have a small lesson on the Icelandic language so you can not only walk with a Viking but talk like one too.

We’ll be showing you our favorite places to eat, drink and visit (we also have an intimate knowledge of happy hour deals that we’re happy to share).


Meeting point: Ingólfur Square (By the Two Pillars with smoke coming up from the top).

This is where you will meet your guide and start the tour. You can find the exact location pointed on the map if you click on the "Meeting point". But it is also desplayed at the "Important information" section and in your ticket! Don't worry, for anything you need we are here 4U!
