Welcome to The Icelandic Women Walking Tour in Reykjavik, a fascinating exploration of the city's history, culture, and the inspiring women who have helped shape it. Over the course of this 3-hour walking tour, we'll delve into Reykjavik's & Iceland’s rich past, visiting some of its most iconic landmarks and hidden gems. Along the way, we'll hear the stories of Icelandic women who have made history, broken barriers, and shaped the country’s culture and society. Learn about powerful women like Vigdís Finnbogadóttir; yes, the Icelandic names are easy, but she was the world's first democratically elected female president. And about the laws passed in Iceland, where Icelandic companies have to prove to the government that you pay equally to both men and women. Our journey will take us to some of Reykjavik's most famous landmarks, including the stunning Hallgrímskirkja church, the colorful houses of the Old Town, and the bustling harbor.
