If you are any of the above, you have found the perfect way to explore our beautiful Reykjavik!

In the tastiest sight seeing tour in Iceland, we explore down town Reykjavik through delicious local cuisines that you would never come across in your typical “to-do in Iceland” itinerary! For approx. 4 hours you will stroll around the city and visit 6 unique restaurants with a fun & knowledgeable local guide by your side.

You will visit everything from well-known ‘must visit restaurants’ to small family run businesses and secret local hangouts. While everything we will have on the tour is traditional Icelandic in some way we decided to leave the fermented shark, rams testicles and sheep head off the menu. Instead we explore why we Icelanders are indeed proud of our local food, by focusing on the absolute most delicious traditional cuisines – that we still enjoy today!

In our tours you will have the chance to try the best local cuisines of Iceland in each season, like the delicious Icelandic lamb that every Icelander grew up loving, homemade Icelandic ice cream from a secret family recipe, a local cheese, the rooted tradition Skyr, a hot dog from the famous Icelandic hot dog stand, an amazing seafood cuisine and much more unlike anything you have ever had before.

If you like to experience unique cuisines, local restaurants and make new friends you should definitely join our Reykjavik Food Walk tour. Just make sure you show up hungry!

    This tour feeds you VERY well, with regular-sized portions of most items you taste. You’ll go from hot dogs to haut cuisine, with a lot in between! Along the way, you see many of downtown Reykjavik’s sights (allow a few minutes before the tour’s start to explore the striking, ultra-modern Harpa concert center, where the tour meets). I particularly enjoyed our lively guide’s personal stories about life in Iceland. She really made a personal connection with our group, rather than just pointing things out or reciting history (though we did get some history, too!).

    While you won’t try some of the weirder Icelandic foods (no fermented shark), you’ll eat the things Icelanders eat – including Icelandic lamb stew, several cheeses, cured meats, a delicious ice cream flavor I guarantee you’ve never tasted before, a famous Icelandic hot dog, equally famous lobster soup (or langoustine soup, to non-Icelanders) and a marvelous, fine-dining plated dessert. In several venues, you’ll be seated at a table, and water is provided.

    Considering all you get, and the fairly high price of food in Iceland, this tour is a real bargain. it definitely takes the place of lunch – and you might not want a big dinner afterwards. Take the tour as soon as possible after you arrive in Reykjavik, because you’ll definitely want to return to some of the stops. Plus, the knowledgeable guides offer great tips along the way for other places to dine – and will give you tailored suggestions, based on the kind of dining experiences you’re seeking. For me, this tour is a “don’t miss” in Reykjavik!
