  • Walking tour of Reykjavik

  • History and culture

  • Unique personal stories


Reykjavik is the northernmost capital city in the world. It was cemented as the capital of Iceland after the parliament (Alþingi) moved here in 1844 from Þingvellir.

It is also commonly believed that Reykjavik was the first settlement to be established in Iceland meaning it has an incredibly rich history that has grown with its people.


Our Funky History walk is a nice, laid back affair.

This Reykjavik walking tour is a quick and easy way to learn about the history of Iceland and the basic stuff you need to know to continue exploring the city on your own.
Follow us on a back route journey to the main sights as well as some smaller fascinating details. This is the funkiest of all tours and our guides will walk you through 1150 years of Icelandic history with their unique entertaining style.
You can meet us in front of Hallgrímskirkja Church. You will recognise our guides by their brightly coloured jackets and the Funky Iceland logo.
