Meeting point

Board the boat in the old harbor of Reykjavik, next to the Víkin Maritime Museum. The boat is a 5 to 10-minute walk from the city center. If you are coming from the city center, pass the first dock and the Hamborgarabúlla Tómasar hamburger stand, and then continue past the Reykjavík Marina Hotel until you see a sign marked "Hlésgata.“ From there, you will see the "happytours.is" sign down by the small pier. The meeting point is on the other side of the shipyard where the large ships are on land for repairs (see the map).
