Support Local Businesses

One of the best ways to experience a city is by visiting the local businesses and authentic shops in the area. There are so many great local stores that it can be difficult to choose which ones to stop in when it comes to Reykjavik. We can help you with this process through one of our walking tours. The Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour gives you a taste of Traditional Icelandic Food all in the centre of Reykjavik. Feast on the legendary Icelandic hot dogs, try Iceland in a bowl = The Icelandic Lamb soup and many more delicacies.

Learn the Secrets of the land


Iceland has a history of Elves, Trolls, Ghosts, and monsters. The town’s quaint streets can have an eerie feel with stories of ghosts and monsters. If you are intrigued by Iceland’s dark past, our Reykjavik Folklore Walking Tour will lead you through a couple of graveyards and tell you about ghosts, elves, trolls, and monsters to haunt your dreams while in Iceland and beyond.

See Reykjavik from the Street View

Many elements of a city that make it so enjoyable can easily be missed if you are not looking in the right places. Drive by in a car, and you may miss the town’s commotions, smells, and energy. To experience the fullness of a city such as Reykjavik, it is good to have a tour guide show you the best on the streets. That is one of the reasons why we offer a Walk With a Viking and Reykjavik Food Lovers tours! Along with the fantastic Icelandic food, we also present fun facts about Iceland’s history.

Customize your Experience

The best part of a walking tour is how easy and affordable it is to have a personal tour guide for your family or travelling group. You can reserve a private Folklore Walking Tour, a private City walk called Walk with a Viking, or a Custom Walking Tour of Reykjavik, where we can include food, drinks, and even museum passes. We wish to work with you to make your visit to Reykjavik spectacular! Contact us with questions and wishes for your trip to Reykjavik.
