About the Icelandic Beer Tour
The Icelandic beer tour is your chance to get a heads-up on the best Icelandic craft beers to enjoy on your trip. It is one of the best ways to get a feel for a new city is to sit down and have a few beers with the locals.
Icelandic people have a short, but proud history of making beer (we need to put our lovely, fresh water to good use). We’ll fill you in on the history of beer, from the Vikings, right through to the resurgence of microbreweries today.
Did you know that beer was once banned in Iceland for 74 years? Thankfully, this is not the case anymore! You’ll learn all about this bizarre story, and our unique drinking culture on the tour.
Our beer tasting tour is guaranteed to leave you with a warm buzz.
We’ll show you some of our favorite bars in Reykjavik where you’ll get the chance to sample 10 different Icelandic beers. We might even be able to give you a sample of a brand new craft beer from an Icelandic microbrewery that isn’t available on the market yet.
Our group sizes are small so we can chat about not just beer, but all things Icelandic.
The tour runs from 5pm – 7:30pm and on some days from 8pm – 10:30pm. It’s the perfect way to kick off your night in Reykjavik, or make the most of your stopover. You can even pick our brains for the best place to eat after the tour, or where to party, if your night is heading that way.
There’s nothing better than relaxing in the pub, having beer with new friends. Skál, my friend! (that’s ‘cheers’ in Icelandic :)
This activity takes place rain or shine.
There is a short walk between the bars, dress according to weather conditions.
