EXPLORE REYKJAVIK'S QUAINT OLD CITY CENTRE WITH A LOCAL GUIDE
The tour begins punctually at the icon of Reykjavik, Hallgrímskirkja church where you will find your guide just outside by the statue of Leifur Eiríksson. Guests are encouraged to check in with the guide 5-10 minutes before the tour starts. The tour will not go up the bell tower and therefore we recommend early arrivals to take the elevator ahead of the tour start. Please note the opening hours of the church and entry fees are found on www.hallgrimskirkja.is
We will begin our trip at the beautiful Hallgrímskirkja Church at the top of the downtown hill. This is the most popular landmark in the city and for good
Afterward, we visit the beautiful sculpture park of Einar Jónsson and learn all about Norse mythology before strolling through the quaint streets of the Þingholt neighborhood towards the City Pond. We feed the ducks, geese, and swans found on the northern end of the pond. Great fun for kids and grown-ups alike and a common activity for local families on weekends.
Continuing across the pond and into the 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 parliament, our modest but beautiful cathedral, and the site of the first Viking homesteads in the city, before visiting the busy Old Harbor.
Strolling along the north shore from the harbor we visit the impressive Harpa Concert Hall.
