Walk with a Viking – your crash course in everything Icelandic
Your Friend in Reykjavik is just that – your friend in the city. And, as your new friend, it’s our goal to make sure you have the best time in Reykjavik.
That’s what friends are for.
Our walking tour is your introduction to Reykjavik. 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 interesting stories and Icelandic mythology. We’ll visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center, such as Hallgrímskirkja Church (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 to see the most popular tourist attractions. We’ll even have a small lesson on 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 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 have earned a tasty Icelandic beer afterwards.
We 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!
Our starting point is at Ingólfstorg (Ingolfs Public Square) by Aðalstræti (Mainstreet) in the center of Reykjavik. You’ll find us by the two stone pillars.
I really enjoyed the tour and got a great overview of the city. If I return I will definitely try another tour with this company!
