Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour – Traditional Icelandic Food

All year Daily About 3 hours Ingólfstorg (Square in city center) Easy

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, but our Reykjavik food lovers tour will do you one 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 food lover, then a casual stroll around Reykjavik, sampling traditional dishes from some of our favourite spots, is going to be a 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.

Icelandic food isn’t well known worlwide, 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 unique cooking and preserving methods.
