Tour Program

Meet our tour guide at bus stop number 8, next to Hallgrímskirkja Church, at 11:00 AM. This is about 4 hour walk and food tasting tour in the heart of Reykjavík city. We will meet you at Hallgrímskirkja church, and walk downhill towards the old harbour.
Hallgrímskirkja is a Lutheran church, named after the Icelandic poet and clergyman Hallgrímur Pétursson. It is 74.5 metres (244 ft) and is the city’s best known landmarks. The design is inspired by Iceland´s nature, geysers, mountains and basalt columns.
On the way through Reykjavík city we will visit a very prestigious old family run restaurant where you will taste traditional food, e.g. salmon, herring, haddock and the famous free range lamb, that we are so proud of. We will stop at the oldest café in town, where you will have a taste of some Icelandic pastries and a cup of hot drink. We will visit a fantastic icecream shop. On the way we will pass the famous hot dog stand, that has been serving the best hot dog in town for over 60 years. They call it “Bæjarins Bestu”, which means “The best in town”. The tour will end in the old harbour.
The Governments house was originally a prison but soon became office for governors. In front of the house are two statues, one of Hannes Hafstein, the first Icelander to be Home Rule Minister, and the other of King Christian iX of Denmark, giving Icelanders their constitution.
The National Parliament Alþingi is the oldest surviving parliament in the world. Alþingi was founded in 920 at Thingvellir but the present parliament building Alþingishús was built in 1881.
Reykjavík City Hall building was constructed in 1992 and houses the offices of the mayor of Reykjavík.
