Private Reykjavik Food Tour

With our selection of local food treats you can check off a lot of things on your Icelandic food bucket list, and you sure won’t be disappointed with the quality of the restaurants we handpicked as our partners.

Our Reykjavik food walk is also good to get oriented in the old Reykjavik city center. All our guides are graduates from the Icelandic Tourist guide school but more importantly, they know how to entertain as well as to educate.

The only bad thing on this tour is the fermented shark, but hey, it's an adventure, and what does not kill you makes you stronger and cooler back home ;).

One of the best things about doing a food tour is getting a sense of the history of the country while eating something delicious & exciting. You will also get tips on Food, Fun & Drink for the rest of our stay in Reykjavik so perfect as one of the first stops while in Reykjavik.

We do of course accommodate dietary restrictions & allergies but traditional Icelandic food is meat, fish, and dairy.
