Enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal while learning about the culture of Iceland during this welcoming Icelandic dinner with a local in Selfoss. Travelers looking for a more personal tour and want to try local delicacies or traditional food in Iceland should look no further than here.

Your unique culture tour in Iceland begins with an optional pick-up at Tryggvaskali restaurant or a designated location in Selfoss town. If you’re coming from Reykjavik, you can travel to Selfoss on the same day of the tour, as the Icelandic capital is only 37 miles (59 kilometers) away.

Selfoss is the largest town outside of the capital area in South Iceland, with more than 6,500 residents. It lies along the Olfusa river and is known for its beautiful attractions as a cultural and tourism hub.

For this small group tour in south Iceland, you don’t have to bring anything except your weather-appropriate clothing. The weather in Iceland is unpredictable, so you may want to wear warm and comfortable clothes and good walking shoes.

Your delicious adventure will officially start after meeting up with your guide and cook for the night. They are a professional chef and teacher with extensive experience in modern and traditional Icelandic cuisine. 

After meeting the chef, you’ll get the chance to learn more about their life as a local and the surrounding area.

Soon after, you’ll travel to the chef’s house called Tonabaer. As you take in the cozy atmosphere of the beautiful home, you’ll get the chance to feel what it’s like to live like an Icelander. One of the exciting things about Tonabaer is the collection of Coca-Cola memorabilia, which is said to be the largest in Iceland.

If you’re an animal lover, you’re lucky because your guide has two friendly furry pets. You can play or take photos with her dog and cat if they’re not busy sleeping in a corner.

Once you make yourself comfortable at Tonabaer with the small group, the culture tour brings you to the night’s highlight. The chef will prepare a three-course traditional Icelandic dinner of local delicacies for your enjoyment. They will also provide you with an alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage to pair up with the food.

The chef often changes the menu and ingredients for each tour to make your experience unique and special. Moreover, if you have any allergies or dietary restrictions, you may inform her so she can accommodate your needs.

After enjoying the three-course Icelandic dinner and learning exciting things about Iceland, you’ll part ways with your guide, officially ending your culture tour. If you opt for the pick-up and drop-off services, they will drive you back to Tryggvaskali restaurant.

Don’t miss the chance to share a welcoming, traditional home-cooked dinner with an Icelandic local in Selfoss during this three-hour South Iceland experience. Check availability now by choosing a date.
