Unique local insights
Reykjavík is easy to navigate by foot and you can of course get a map at the tourist information and head out and explore on your own. What you’ll gain from joining the I Heart Reykjavík Walking Tour is a unique insight into the city’s history and local life with a native Icelander that lives and breaths this city every day.
With the “versatile” Icelandic weather it can also be tempting to go on a bus tour around Reykjavík but we feel you miss all the best bits on a bus. Reykjavík’s charm is not about big landmarks or must see tourists spots – it’s about the friendly people, atmospheric bars and cafes and that “je ne sais quoi” you will best experience exploring the city by foot.
Small group sizes – lots of opportunities for your questions
Because the groups are small (max 12 people) there will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions about anything that pops into mind during the tour. The guide’s local knowledge and our genuine wish that you get the most our of your visit to Reykjavík will ensure we’ll provide you with all the answers you need. Please remember though that we can’t answer your questions if you don’t ask them. So don’t be shy and take advantage of your time with a local.
The best places to eat, drink and be merry
Apart from visiting some of Reykjavík’s most interesting areas and landmarks your guide will point out great restaurants, charming cafes and happy hour worthy bars along the way. We don’t necessarily recommend the fanciest places in town (we can tell you where they are if you want to know) but just places we enjoy or that have been recommended to us by friends, family and your fellow travelers.
Bookable extra: Síminn SIM card
Because we know how much you like to stay connected (how else are you going to post all those photos to Instagram?) you can add a Síminn SIM card to your booking. The Síminn SIM card includes 2000 ISK worth of credit and you can easily top up online if you run out. You can also buy (some say ridiculously cheap) data packages online once you have the card. Easy peasy.
