Fine print:

Like most "free" tours of this kind, this tour functions on a pay-what-you-want system. There is no beer included, but you can buy as much beer as you want at the brewery. Since our guides only get paid through donations at the end of the tour, we reserve the right to cancel the tour if attendance is below 5. We hope you understand. On certain days there are private functions at the brewery, so we need to cancel the tour. Those dates will be listed below as soon as we get the information.

Note also that the drinking age in Iceland is 20 years, but children are welcome on the tour as long as they are accompanied by an adult. You can buy drinks other than beer at the brewery, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

What to Expect

We will explore the Old Harbour area, and the history of that. We look at great street art and show you around an area very often overlooked, and give you a very interesting insight into the craft beer movement in Iceland, and how the beer landscape has changed over the past decade or so.

After the walk you’ll sit down in the tap room of Ægir brewery, where you can enjoy a great selection of craft beer, or a number of other beverages, if you prefer. 

The drinking age in Iceland is 20 years, but children are welcome on the tour, accompanied by a parent or guardian. Bear in mind, though, that our guides might need to see identification if you look particularly young. 


The walk starts at the green clock at Lækjartorg square

If you’ve done our other Free Walking Tour you should know this place – it’s the same starting point!
We meet up a few minutes before the start of the tour and shoot the breeze.

Walk around the Old Harbour

The Old Harbour is a wonderful area, filled with great restaurants, bars, museums and more. We show you around, tell you about the history and give you an insight into Icelandic culture, folk tales and more.

Ægir Brewery

We end up at Ægir brewery, where we will tour the facilities, discuss the brewing process and end up in the tap room, where we will be your bartenders.

Dinner time?

After you’ve wet your whistle, we would be more than happy to recommend a nice place for dinner, if you’d like. The Old Harbour is full of great places to eat, so this is a great place to start

Show your appreciation

The Old Harbour Brewery Tour operates on the same principle as our regular Free Walking Tour. You pay whatever you feel the tour was worth at the end. We are not paid for these tours except through our guests’ donations at the end, which means that we need to deliver. We hope you’ll show our guides your appreciation before you leave the brewery.
