Walk with a Viking - Your Introduction to Reykjavik
- See the beautiful Harpa Concert Hall
- Experience the old Reykjavik city center
- Enjoy the birdlife at the Reykjavik Pond
- Have fun with your guide and don't forget to ask questions about anything and everything Icelandic
- Get the true local feeling walking in Reykjavik with an old friend whom you haven't seen in a while
You’ll visit all of the famous landmarks in the city center such as Harpa concert hall, Hallgrímskirkja Church (your guide will teach you how to pronounce that) and the Reykjavik pond. Your guide will also share hidden, local spots with you; things you’d miss if you didn’t know what to look for. Your guide will show you their favorite places to eat, drink and visit plus insider info on the best happy hour deals, should you be interested.
The tour lasts approximately two hours and you’ll walk around 4 kilometers. This is a small-group tour, meaning there will never be more than 12 people on a tour at a time so that your guide can answer all of your questions and you can get to know each other a bit better. The aim of this tour is for you to experience the unique, friendly atmosphere of Reykjavik, not just to see the most popular tourist attractions. You'll even get a small lesson on the Icelandic language from your guide so that you can not only walk like a viking, but talk like one too.

Prepare for the activity
Meet up at Ingolfstorg Square in the center of Reykjavik by the two stone high seat pillars (over 2 meters high). The square is at the beginning of Austurstræti (Austurstræti 1) and is squared off by the streets Aðalstræti, Hafnarstræti, Veltusund and Vallarstræti. If you walk down Laugavegur (the main shopping street), please just continue all the way down until you come to the square. Walk straight down until the end. On the Ingolfur square itself you can see Kvosin, a small grocery market, Citycenter Plaza Hotel. Hlölli a fast food establishment and finally the Kebab house. It is sincerely recommended to use Google Maps because the Icelandic street names can be tricky.Open in Google Maps ⟶
