Ideal as a Shore Excursion from a Reykjavik port

Ship ahoy and welcome to Reykjavik, the world's most northerly capital!

Reykjavik is known for its colorful houses and it was the home of the first permanent settlements in Iceland. Reykjavik actually means smokey bay since that is what the viking Ingolfur Arnarson founder of the city first saw, steam rising up from the hot springs when he stepped into the land.
It is a small city but what it lacks in size it makes up by its quirkiness and by being interesting and different from most other European cities.
It is a great place for foodies since there is a big variety of great restaurants and cafes and the local hotdog stand is one of the most popular food stops.

In this tour your guide will take you around the city and show you all of its highlights.

The city has a lot to offer and it's perfect for a day excursion with a local guide.


I will pick you up at your accommodation or the port and take you for a 3 - 4 hour tour in the city. As long as time allows I will show you all the main sights and landmarks and give you a chance to visit some local museums if you are interested.
The highlights you will be seeing and visiting:

Laugavegur main shopping street
Hallgrimskirkja Church
Harpan Concert House
Sun Voyager Viking Ship
Hofdi House
Grotta Lighthouse
Perlan (e. The Pearl) viewing platform
The president's House
Reykjavik City Hall
The Old Harbour

If you are interested and time allows to visit some museums, here are a few I recommend:
The Whale Museum
The Aurora Reykjavik Museum
Reykjavik Maritime Museum
The Settlement Exhibition
National museum of Iceland
Ice cave exhibition
Saga museum

I am flexible and will listen to all your wishes and needs and adapt the tour to your liking. As soon as you book the tour you can contact me and let me know if there are any particular preferences about the tour or discuss it with me after we meet.
