Reykjavik Walking Tour – Walk with a Viking

Your crash course in everything Icelandic

Our Reykjavik walking tour is your introduction to our country. 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 exciting stories and Icelandic mythology. We’ll visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center, such as Harpa Concert Hall, Reykjavik Harbour, Hallgrímskirkja Church (we’ll teach you how to pronounce that), Reykjavik Pond and the Parliament building.  But, we’ll also share hidden, local spots with you like a visit to an Elf home; 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 the Icelandic language so you can not only walk with a Viking but talk like one too.

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).

The Reykjavik walking tour lasts approximately two hours, and we’ll walk around 3-4 km, meaning you’ll have earned a tasty Icelandic beer afterward.

We never have more than 12 of our new friends on 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

“Stefan is the funniest dude on the island so of course, he’s giving this tour. Plenty of history with a bit of elvish magic sprinkled in, this is a great way to be introduced to Reykjavik and help you understand its people a bit better. 12/10. Would definitely recommend.”

“My husband and I had a lovely time on this tour with our guide, He was very knowledgeable about Icelandic history and customs – he taught us a lot about the beginnings of the city and the stories that surround the culture. We especially loved learning about Icelandic Christmas! Strongly recommend this to anyone visiting Reykjavik.”
