What you'll do

Join me on an amazing journey through 1150 years of Icelandic history and learn how the fight for survival, freedom, and tolerance have shaped the nation. Learn how these values continue to shape its liberal attitudes today. Listen as your guide brings not-so-common stories to life and enjoy the complimentary traditional Icelandic lunch at the end of the tour.

This is the funkiest of all tours and a fun and informative way of learning about Iceland’s history from Viking settlers to modern times.

We went straight from the airport upon arriving in Iceland to downtown Reykjavik for this tour, and it was the perfect start to our week in this beautiful country! We learned a great deal about the history and culture, we were able to see many important sites, and we were able to get recommendations for the rest of our visit. If you prefer to hear the stories of Iceland's culture and history versus reading about them in a book or in a museum, I highly recommending this walking tour.

This is a must! Having done many tours in the past, I can tell you that this one is an unforgettable experience. Lalli was friendly, immensely informative, and I came away with a much greater understanding and appreciation of Icelandic history and culture than I could have anticipated. Five stars, for sure.

This tour was super exciting. The tales of Iceland’s history were captivating, personalised and so wonderfully told. Just the other day I thought guided tours were a bit lame but I’ve totally changed my mind now. Thank you!

The funky history tour with Lalli was a great tour and I highly recommend it for visitors to Iceland. Lalli was friendly, very knowledgeable, and engaging. He told a story about the history of Iceland with many stops that were interesting and applicable. The lunch at the end was a nice finishing touch.
