The Reykjavik walking tour is your introduction to Reykjavik. It will help you get your bearings and make the most of your stay in Iceland. It is recommended as your first stop when you arrive. You'll be shown where the Vikings first settled and how Reykjavik developed into the country’s capital.

The family-friendly tour brings the history of Iceland to life with exciting stories and Icelandic mythology. You will visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center, such as Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavik Harbour, Hallgrímskirkja Church (you'll also be taught how to pronounce it), Reykjavik Pond and the Parliament building.

The tour guide will also share hidden, local spots with you like a visit to an Elf stone; things you’d miss if you didn’t know what to look for.
