Start your Reykjavik walking tour with a look at the striking Hallgrímskirkja church in the city center. Ascend to the top of the bell tower if conditions allow, for an incredible view over the city's multicolored rooftops, Faxaflói Bay and its islands, and the surrounding mountains and volcanoes. Then, go to the beautiful sculpture garden of the Einar Jónsson Museum and learn all about Norse mythology before strolling through the quaint streets of the Þingholt neighborhood. Continue to the city pond of Tjörnin pond to visit the geese and swans.  Take a look at City Hall and see the super-sized topographical map of Iceland, where your guide will give explanations about the country's fascinating geology and volcanic history. Wind your way into the heart of the city to look at the parliament building, the modest but beautiful cathedral and the site of the first Viking homesteads. Next, visit the Old Harbour and discover the impressive Harpa Concert Hall with views of the dramatic Sólfar sculpture overlooking the bay and Mount Esja.
