The Magical History Tour

Sit back in our Tuk Tuk (auto rickshaw), relax and take in the sights of Reykjavík’s landmarks, architecture and history. Your tour guide/chauffeur will tell you everything worth knowing about downtown Reykjavík and its oldest residential areas.

Experience the magic of history in the oldest part of Reykjavík. See how the town expanded from the harbour, hear the exciting tales of yesteryear, feel the atmosphere of the city´s most sought after residential area, smell the aroma of the city´s newest and most exciting restaurants mixing with the more traditional sea-related activities. Our guides will take you on a journey through time and weave a magical thread of fun and facts for you to experience. The Tuk Tuk´s provide an easy access to the narrow, cobbled streets of the old town and give you an insiders look on Reykjavík of today, with a touch of the past.

The 75 min tour gives you a thorough look at Reykjavík of the old, with it´s fishing cottages by the harbour and the more extinguished houses on the hill of Þingholt, from the revival of Grandi, where modern times meet the fishing shacks, to the ingrained neighborhoods where every house is of a different color, with the pond at it´s center. You guide gives you an insider´s view on how the residents of today stand firmly in the Reykjavík of the past. A great way to see the city´s landmarks.
Our Tuk Tuks have been specially modified to  meet Iceland’s high environmental standards, as well as the Nordic weather conditions.
