See Reykjavik from the Street View:

Many elements of a city that make it so interesting can easily be missed if you are not looking in the right places. Drive by in a car and you may miss the commotions, smells, and energy of the town. To experience the fullness of a city such as Reykjavik, it is a good idea to have a tour guide show you the best on the streets. That is one of the reasons why we offer a Reykjavik Street Food Tour.
