Reykjavík Christmas Walk

Tour duration: 09:00-12:00
Departure: Elding ticket office in the Old Harbour
During our Reykjavík Christmas Walk we offer you an insight into our Christmas traditions, old and new, as well as telling you about the history, art and architecture, culture and cuisine of the city.
Our guide will welcome you, dressed in Iceland’s national costume to set the mood for this cultural and festive experience. You’ll wander through the city centre, beautifully decorated for Christmas, with twinkling Christmas lights everywhere, making stops at several interesting locations along the way. At each one you’ll get a little taste of Iceland such as the very traditional fermented shark and dried fish as well as our Christmas favorites like malt ale that is a must on every Christmas table.
We will visit the Settler´s exhibition that houses the oldest ruins of a Viking farm in Iceland and Reykjavik oldest cemetery for some magical rune reading. Finally a nice way to end the tour as everyone will receive a little Christmas gift – a lovely souvenir of Iceland and this Christmas moment.
Join us and get a unique chance to learn about the traditional Icelandic Christmas!
