Our tour departs daily from Hallgrímskirkja Church in Reykjavik. Please be there no later than 10 minutes before your departure time.
What To Expect
Make your first stop at the Hallgrímskirkja Church itself, where you climb to the top of the bell tower. Get out your camera to capture incredible views over the red rooftops of the city and Faxaflói Bay beyond. Get an introduction to the city while you catch your breath and enjoy the scenery.
Continue to Einar Jónsson's statue garden, where your guide delves into some of the myths and legends of the Norse gods. Walk through the lanes of Thingholt (Þingholt) toward Reykjavik City Pond. Feed ducks, geese, and swans that reside there, a small pocket of nature in the middle of the city.
Get a primer on Iceland's volcanology and geology as you contemplate the giant topographical map of the country outside the city hall. Walk past Reykjavik's cathedral, the parliament, and the site of the city's very first houses.
