Reykjavik City Walking Tour
From $62.45
Low Price Guarantee
Overview
Reykjavik often serves as a base from which to explore Iceland’s natural attractions, but the capital also holds wonders of its own. On this walking tour, explore the city streets and see sides of Reykjavik many visitors miss. With all entrance fees included and your guide leading the way, there’s no need for a map—take in sights including Faxaflói Bay, Hallgrímskirkja Church, and Thingholt.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in downtown Reykjavik, and then set off into the city to begin your walking tour.
First, visit Hallgrímskirkja Church—a landmark on the Reykjavik skyline. Climb to the top of the bell tower and admire sweeping views over the red rooftops to Faxaflói Bay and beyond, while your guide sheds light on the capital’s layout.
Next, head to Einar Jónsson's statue garden. Here, gain insight into the myths and legends of the Norse gods. Stroll along the lanes of Thingholt and visit Reykjavik City Pond—where ducks, geese, and swans paddle in the shallows.
Take in city attractions including Harpa Concert Hall, the harbor, cathedral, parliament building, and other highlights. Enjoy fine views across the bay to Mt. Esja, and finish your tour at the Sólfar sculpture in central Reykjavik.

If you go to the Tourist Information office (where walking tours begin) I'm sure that the guide would be happy for you to join his/her group when the tour begins.

Sorry to hear that! Ours ran a bit late, but was very apologetic, and then we were off. I'd be sure to petition for your money back for the tour guide being a no-show.
