Reykjavik Walking Tour – Walk with a Viking

All year Daily About 2 hours Ingólfstorg (Public square in city center) Very easy

Welcome to Reykjavik. Let us help you get your bearings and make the most of your stay in Iceland.

Our family-friendly tour brings the history of Iceland to life with captivating stories and tales of Icelandic mythology. We’ll visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center, such as Hallgrímskirkja Church (don’t worry, we’ll teach you how to pronounce that).  But, we’ll also share hidden, local spots with you; 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 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 the Chandler to your Joey, and the Rachel to your Monica; 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).

The tour lasts approximately two hours and we’ll walk around 4km, meaning you’ll definitely have earned a tasty Icelandic beer afterward.

We’ll never have more than 12 of our new friends on a tour, meaning we can answer all of your questions and get to know each other a bit.

Book your spot now – our tours run every day and we can’t wait to show you around!
