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. You don’t have to be a special beer lover to have fun on our tour and maybe you will even be introduced to a beer style you will love.

We’ll show you some of our favorite bars in Reykjavik where you’ll get the chance to sample 10 different Icelandic craft beers from microbreweries all around Iceland. 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. We will also give you tips on how to save a little bit on drinks while you are here.

If you do not enjoy beer but still want to join the Icelandic Beer Tour we can adjust the tour for you, offering you 5 different Icelandic spirits or snaps.

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 group sizes are small or 12 people max so we are able to chat about anything and everything Icelandic, not just about alcoholic drinks

The Icelandic Beer Tour is 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 :)
