Description of this tour
The Reykjavik Food Lovers’ Tour
Treat your taste buds to the tastiest tour in Iceland.
They say that sharing a meal is the best way to get to know each other, we think a walking tour with at least 6 foodie stops is even better!
Our stops include the oldest restaurant in Reykjavik, a legendary hot dog stand, our favourite food market and one of the top restaurants in Iceland.
If you’re a bit of a food lover, then a casual stroll around Reykjavik, sampling traditional dishes from some of our favorite spots, is going to be your little slice of heaven.
Our Food Lovers’ Tour samples at least 15 different Icelandic dishes; both traditional classics and modern favorites. We know all the best spots to get the famous Icelandic meat soup (just like mamma makes it), Skyr (a type of yoghurt) and delicious lobster soup. You can even try some fermented shark if you dare.
Keep warm with a belly full of good food!
Icelandic food isn’t well known by the rest of the world, but we’re hoping to change that. We have long, dark winters where we spend a lot of time indoors, and we have an abundance of fresh meat, fish and dairy, so we’ve kinda perfected this whole ‘cooking’ business.
You’ll learn what the Vikings ate and how Icelandic people have survived harsh winters thanks to our special cooking and preserving methods.
The tour runs every Saturday and Sunday from 1pm – 4:30 pm and we’ll walk around 2.5km, making plenty of stops along the way. With no more than 12 people on a tour, you’ll be able to ask any questions about Icelandic food and culture, plus make a few new friends. And, you certainly won’t leave feeling hungry!
Bon appetite! Or, as we say in Iceland ”Verði þér að góðu.”The Food tour is available for private groups upon request. Get in touch to discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org
