Full description
Find your guide in front of Hallgrímskirkja Church by the statue of Leifur Eiríksson. This is on a hill and the highest ground of Reykjavík, from which you can get an overview of the area. From that point the walk is downhill and easy on the foot. The guide will take you through various streets of Reykjavík, passing by important buildings of great architecture and will detail their history as you walk by. You’ll get a great introduction to Iceland's history and culture. See the Harpa Concert Hall, beautiful on the inside, which also serves well as a warm stop on cold days which are frequent in Iceland. Continue the walk along the oceanfront before eventually moving inland to parliament and city hall. You can purchase lunch at a restaurant with meat, vegan, and fish options.

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Erik. We walked about 5 miles in 3 hours but the pace was slow and very informative.
