Reykjavík Highlights Walking Tour

Select Date and Travellers

    What to Expect
    The tour starts at What's On tourist information centre located on Laugavegur 5 in central Reykjavík. 
    We start by walking towards Hallgrímskirkja Church, a prominent landmark. We will go up the bell tower for an incredible view over the city with its multi-coloured rooftops, Faxaflói Bay with its islands and the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. Next we visit the lovely Einar Jónsson sculpture garden where we will learn the basics of Norse mythology before strolling through the quaint streets of Þingholt neighbourhood towards the City Pond.
    From there we continue on into the Reykjavik City Hall we view the super-sized topographical map of Iceland and your guide will explain a little bit about Iceland’s fascinating geology and volcanic history. Our tour then threads the heart of the city, taking in the Alþingi Parliament House, our modest but beautiful cathedral and the site of the first Viking homesteads in the city. Next up is the Old Harbour, an up-and-coming city centre. Strolling along the north shore from the harbour we visit the impressive Harpa Concert Hall and Sólfarið Sculpture (Sun Voyager) before our final stop at the Volcano House where our guests will enjoy a short presentation and discounts from the store and exhibition.
