If you like Pokémon Go, Reykjavík Excursions has your back.

The popular tour bus company has announced that for the trifling sum of 7,500 ISK, you can book a 4-hour tour of the capital to visit the city’s various and sundry Pokéstops and gyms, and to hunt for Pokémons in the wild.

“Join us on a live Pokémon hunt around Reykjavík‘s hottest Pokémon spots with Icelandic Pokémon Trainers.

On this four-hour tour we will go to all the best places in Reykjavík to find Pokémon where they will be lured. Icelandic Pokémon Trainers will help you evolve and transfer your Pokémon, assist you in the PokéGym and answer any questions you might have about the game.

Go up a level and don‘t miss out on this fun tour!”

For those who play, it should be noted that if you plan to utilise this tour to hatch a bunch of eggs, bear in mind that the speed limit for “walking” in Pokémon Go is 20 KPH.

As reported, Pokémon Go is tremendously popular in Iceland right now. Our anecdotal research has uncovered that Team Valor (the red team) is particularly dominant in the capital area.

The game has however drawn concerns from the police, who advise people to be aware of their surroundings when wandering around looking at their smart phones – just as the game advises you to do on start-up.

Editor’s note: Shown in the above banner images are the Pokémons Ponyta and Mareep. The puffin-like Pokémon shown is as yet unidentified.
