Overview

I Heart Reykjavik is a small family run company in Reykjavik that specializes in one thing: making your stay in Reykjavik the best it can be. We do that by offering unique and interesting experiences and partnering with companies that we know will take good care of you. Our main product is the I Heart Reykjavik Walking Tour that has been featured in publications such as the New York Times, New York Magazine, Irish Times and on numerous travel blogs. If you need a bit more flexibility or you just want to keep your guide to yourself you can also look into booking our Private Walking Tour. Finally we just introduced a great new Crash Course in Icelandic which will be available from May 2015. We care about social responsibility, honesty and integrity and we try to reflect that in everything we do. We also love what we do and count our blessings every day. We heart this city and we want you to heart it too.

Alma was informative, friendly and gave us a great introduction to “her” Reykjavík. Her recommendations for city highlights were spot on. Thank you I Heart Reykjavík.

We found this tour to be a fun and informative way to get a taste of Reykjavik on our first day while we waited for our room to be ready.

did the walking tour on our last day and found it insightful/interesting. we had day excursions every day so we didn't get to see much of reykjavik until then. the guide (the BF, now husband) was very knowledgeable too.
