Voyageurs D'Islande

I have been working in the tourism field in Iceland for many years. Both at the tourist office and as a guide, I enjoy very much the nature and wilderness available in this country. Reykjavik is such a wonderful and nice small Capital, that I felt in love with it and decided to share that with visitors!

Major Landmarks

  • Hallgrimskirkja

  • Harpa

  • Reykjavík City Hall

Directions to Starting Point

In order to start the tour, please make your way to Hallgrimskirkja, the big church in the center. To get there from the center, go up Skolavordustigur street, the street parallel to the main shopping street: Laugavegur.

Tips

Places to stop along the way

Harpa Concert Hall, Braud & Co, Reykjavík Röst. Uppsalir, Café Babalu. And finally a stop at the local supermarket (Bonus) to buy some skyr, the local Icelandic dessert, rich in protein.

Best time of day

Winter: between 12 to 4PM
Summer: Morning or evening are the easiest time

Precautions

Iceland was rated one of the 5 safest country in the world, therefore you do not have to worry in terms of safety. The only thing I would warn you about is ice: in winter, streets can become very icy, be careful when waking down the streets and if needed, stop at a local grocery store, they all sell small city crampons to wear over your shoes.

This tour is an amazing presentation and description of Reykjavik. We learn the main historical background of the town, but also the icelandic culture and events, traditions still happening. We can follow the visit hands in the pocket or take pictures during the tour !

bonus :
- it ends with recommendations for some places such as the museums for out knowledge, but also adresses to drink or eat. Therefore the listener / tourist has a large range of activities to do or places to go
- the voice is really clear and can be understood by everybody, even French people (I am)

I vividly recommand it, and the app in general ! Takk fyrir
