Our Reykjavik walking tour is your introduction to Iceland.  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 and for our more specialist Reykjavik Walking Tours to follow afterwards.

More about our Reykjavik Tour!

Walk with a modern Viking, getting a crash cours in everything Icelandic!

We will visit all the highlights of the Reykjavik city center

  • The first Viking house

  • Reykjavik Harbor

  • Harpa Concert Hall

  • Hallgrímskirkja church

  • Reykjavik pond

  • The Parliament building

We will also share hidden, local spots with you like a visit to a genuine Elf home and other local gems – things you’d miss if you didn’t know what to look for.


A personal small-group walking tour of Reykjavik

Our family-friendly tour brings the history of Iceland to life with exciting stories and Icelandic folklore. For an even more in-depth look at our myths and legends, check out our Reykjavik Folklore Walking Tour.

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 tour guide but talk like one too!

Local Food & Fun Recommendations in Reykjavik

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.

We never have more than 12 of our new friends on this tour, meaning we can answer all of your questions and get to know each other a bit. But if you’d like a smaller, even more personal experience, check out our Reykjavik Private Tour option.

Great tour guide and lovely tour - Great tour of Reykjavik and we had an excellent tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of wonderful information with us. The tour even lasted longer than expected because she told us so many great stories and facts about Reykjavik, which we loved! She was also kind enough to answer our questions and give us recommendations after the tour on where to eat and shop.

Great Introduction to Reykjavik - We had a great experience on this tour with our guide. He was knowledgable, friendly and humorous. I would highly recommend taking this tour on your first day in Reykjavik, especially if you plan to drive the Ring Road. We learned a lot about the city but also an overall history of Iceland. The information shared gave us a great foundation for our entire travel through Iceland. This one is worth the time and money. Thank you!

An engaging "viking" tour guide made this trip interesting and fun. - Our guide and he had a lot of fun energy and knew his history and culture well. He had excellent English and a great sense of humor. It was about a two-hour excursion and covered the major site. If you have a couple of hours and want an enjoyable introduction to this…
