About The Gourmet Golden Circle Tour

Each Gourmet Golden Circle adventure is an exclusive experience. 

We avoid the traffic and follow a quiet path through stunning countryside to the Secret Lagoon (towels included). Bath in the lagoon while served local gourmet finger food. Locally brewed beer, wine and tapas are served while you float in the warm volcanic waters of the lagoon - the aperitif of a lifetime!

Appetites whetted, we visit the greenhouse where the tomato is King and imbibe the best bloody Mary and tomato soup on the planet with home made bread (dangerously fresh and tasty). We will also taste the home grown cucumber salsa they make and more local delicacies.

Suitably refreshed, we visit the lively Geysir which will perform for us like there is no tomorrow … and then, the mighty Gullfoss waterfall – not for nothing the number one visitor attraction in Iceland.

Now ready for some real food we repair to a farm restaurant to have early honest gourmet slow food dinner on locally produced beef and delicious homemade ice-cream. Carpaccio from the farm is served with home made feta cheese, roasted pine nuts, parmigiano cheese, basil, pesto oil, salt and pepper. Grilled hamburgers from the farm with “happy pig” bacon from the nearest pig farm, served with fresh and roasted vegetables and fries. Selected red wine paired with the food. Finally we enjoy a selection of home made ice cream from the farm.

Finally, we visit the Thingvellir UNESCO national park reserve where we witness the majestic continental drift separating Europe and America and, time permitting, the Althingi -the oldest house of parliament in the world.

Enjoy a full day getting to know the real Iceland, the people, the culture, the humor, the food, the fun. It’s an unforgettable experience!
