Pink City Walk
Pink City Walk
Duration: 2 hours / Difficulty: Very easy
Reykjavík 101: Downtown Reykjavík - from bottom to top, history and trivia. Discover how and where gay history in Reykjavík began, how the battle for equality has evolved through the years and where we are at now. See the venues frequented by LGBT people throughout the years and learn about the general history and outlook of the people who built Reykjavík and those who inhabit it today. We usually start the tour by the Pink Iceland offices on Hverfisgata (street parallel to Laugavegur, the main shopping street) Places often visited include the old center of town where we see Parliament, Iceland's Cathedral, Hotel Borg, Iceland's first (and oldest) street, Reykjavík's oldest house (which used to house a gay bar) and loads of other cool sites. Harpa, the beautiful and brand new Reykjavik Music and Conference Center. After a short stop we continue past the Central Bank of Iceland, The Supreme Court and The National Theatre before closing the circle and ending where we started. We welcome and encourage your questions during the tour. We're pretty knowledgeable about the city and its history and if we don't know the answer we're good storytellers and can probably come up with an answer more interesting than the facts! The tour is only available in English. If you prefer another language please give us a week's notice to try and arrange a suitable guide for you.
