About the experience
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.
In our Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour you will sample 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. And you can even try some fermented shark if you dare!
They say that sharing a meal is the best way to get to know each other, we think a walking tour with at least 5 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. We’ll walk around 2.5km, making stops along the way. You’ll also learn what the Vikings ate and how Icelandic people have survived harsh winters thanks to our special cooking and preserving methods.
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.
With no more than 12 people on a tour, you’ll be able to ask any questions about Icelandic food and culture. And, you certainly won’t leave feeling hungry!
Consider us your friends, here to show you around and make sure you have a great time. Join us and share in our passion for history, food and making new friends. Bon appetite! Or, as we say in Iceland ”Verði þér að góðu.”
