Automatic Tourist Guide app

The Icelandic SmartGuide Tours have been professionally produced and allow anyone to explore the countryside, immersing themselves in Icelandic sagas and local knowledge. The tours provide an innovative and engaging way for tourists (and locals) to explore the country on their own time, and on their own schedule.

While the list of tours includes the likes of the Golden Circle, Reykjavik Downtown Walk and Vatnajökull, it also includes lesser known tours like The Elf World (Hafnarfjörður), Reykjanes Explored and Reykjavik Art Tour which are highly recommended.

How does the guide work?

The guides work completely offline and features storytelling, directions, narration and professional photography from around the countries most popular (and lesser known) destinations.

The app uses GPS to track your location, automatically triggering points of interest and directions as you explore. The guides are available in many languages and provide thoughtful detail about each location.  Enjoy through headphones or play through your car AUX input for everyone to enjoy.

You will need internet connection to download the tours. As the tours are rich in audio and photo content, we suggest downloading while connected to wifi to avoid any suprise 3g/4g data bills if you are traveling from abroad.Once downloaded the tours are enjoyed without internet connection.
