REYKJAVIK INSIDER WALK & FOOD TOUR
Explore Iceland’s old city Center, learn about Viking history of Reykjavik and catch up on current affairs with an local guide and top it with Icelandic craft beer and local food.
We will begin our trip at the beautiful Hallgrímskirkja Church at the top of the downtown hill. This is the most popular landmark in the city, and for good reason. If conditions allow, we will go up the bell tower for an incredible view over the city with its multi-coloured rooftops, Faxaflói bay with its islands and the surrounding mountains and volcanoes.
Afterwards we visit the beautiful sculpture park of Einar Jónsson and learn about Norse mythology before strolling through the quaint streets of Þingholt neighbourhood towards the City Pond.
Continuing across the pond and into the City Hall we view the super-sized topographical map of Iceland and your guide will explain a little bit about Iceland’s fascinating geology and volcanic history.
Our tour then threads the heart of the city, taking in the parliament, our modest but beautiful cathedral and the site of the first Viking homesteads in the city, before visiting the Old Harbour with views of the impressive Harpa Concert Hall and the popular Sun Voyager sculpture.
You will have the opportunity to try six different Icelandic micro brewed beers, each of them paired with a local delicacy.
Some food samples are included with the tasting, however, this is an appetiser. Bryggjan Brugghus also has a great menu to choose from after the beer tasting.
