Itinerary

You'll start at
Ingólfur Square
101 Reykjavík, IcelandWe meet up at Ingolfstorg Square in the center of Reykjavik by the two stone high seat pillars (Over 2 meters high), The square is at the beginning of Austurstræti (Austurstræti 1) and is squared off by the streets Aðalstræti, Hafnarstræti, Veltusund, and Vallarstræti. If you walk down Laugavegur (The main shopping street) please just continue all the way down until you come to the square always walking straight down until you can't continue further. On the Ingolfur square itself, you can see Kvosin a small grocery market and finally Center Hotel Plaza. We recommend for people to use Google Maps or something similiar because the Icelandic street names can be tricky :).

An excellent tour with Bardi on Monday. Bardi was handsome, witty and informative! We were very lucky to be part of a small group and got lots of information and history. A great way to orientate yourself to the lovely city of Rekjavik.
