Reykjavík City Library hosts free literary walking tours in downtown Reykjavík every Thursday in June, July and August at 5pm. The walks start from the library's main branch in Tryggvagata 15. Icelandic crime fiction, old and new, is introduced at various stops by two or three guides from the library.
The walk can also be booked for groups throughout the year for a fee of ISK 30.000.
This walk suits everyone, as it is at an easy pace. It is a fun way to get to know Icelandic literature with a bit of history mixed in. The program takes just over an hour.
