Take advantage of Wednesdays at the Nordic House in Reykjavík and let northern culinary brilliance and arts fill your senses with a lovely evening out. This new and refreshing addition to the city’s cultural life is a perfect weekday evening for the mindful traveller. 

Your visit will start with a guided tour around this lovely building, designed by the famous Finnish architect, Alvar Aalto. The harmony of the design, from the interior decorating and furniture to the clean form of the building itself, will be sure to delight you. You will also be introduced to the 50 years of history of  Nordic collaboration, the house as a home to writers, artists, poets and politicians through the years.

You will also have time to take in this year's main exhibition 'THE CITY BEING', and get both information and personal explanations from your guide. The exhibition is a selection of contemporary artists and designers presenting their view of Reykjavík through retrospective and time-fluid elements with a touch of imagination to set it alive. 

Then it is time for dinner at the renowned AALTO Bistro restaurant, where the best seafood the city has to offer teams up with wonderful warm chocolate cakes and lemon meringue pies, all prepared by the award-winning team of chefs of AALTO Bistro. All is made from the freshest local ingredients, and naturally, both vegan and vegetarian options are available, and even meat, if you are not a fan of the fruits of the sea. 

After a delicious dinner, you will then sit down to enjoy a short concert, where everything from Icelandic jazz to Balkan folk music is on offer, ranging from upbeat to melancholy for a great final note on a fantastic evening. 

Grab the opportunity to divulge deep into all the best the north has to offer. Join this cultural tour for dinner and explore the collaboration of Nordic cultures. Check availability by choosing a date.
