Gourmet Golden Circle Tour

In this unique tour, we have united the nation's culinary traditions with Iceland's beautiful nature. Our objective is to let you enjoy traditional Icelandic treats while marvelling over the sights on Iceland's most popular route, the Golden Circle.

We'll travel the circle counter-clockwise. We do this because of two reasons; firstly, by going this route, we can avoid the big buses and the crowds that follow. Secondly, we'll get to start by exploring both the site and the food south of the Golden Circle, and visit a provincial place for the real taste of Iceland.

After visiting the locals, we'll stop at a greenhouse that grows tomatoes by using the Earth's thermal energy. And of course, we'll get to taste the products from the site. 

Then it is off to explore the Golden Circle. The first stop is the beautiful Gullfoss waterfall where you'll see the river Hvítá cascade down 32-metres into a canyon. 

Next up is the geothermal area of Geysir, where you can witness the hot spring Strokkur erupt in a 20-metre high water column. You'll get to enjoy some authentic Icelandic treats on both sites. 

From there we will make a visit to the local farm Efstidalur. There we'll get to taste home-made ice cream and take some amazing selfies with the animals.

Finally, we top off the tour at Þingvellir National Park. This is the site where Iceland's parliament was founded in 930 A.D., making it the oldest parliament in the world. 

The park is located between two tectonic plates that are drifting apart, tearing up the landscape around in the process. You'll get to sample some truly traditional treats at Þingvellir before we head back to the city.

Our goal is to create a unique experience and introduce both Icelandic food and the traditions behind it. So book now to secure your spot on this delicious tour.
