Description

Book this incredible guided excursion to try some delicious Icelandic food and admire the beautiful natural landscapes of West Iceland. Those who want to discover Iceland's culture and cuisine while visiting off-the-beaten-path rural locations should book this small-group tour now.

Your tour starts with pick-up from central Reykjavik near the Hallgrimskirkja church. You'll meet your guide and the other guests joining you on the trip. This excursion is a small-group tour with a maximum of seven guests. The small number of participants means you'll have plenty of opportunities to ask your guide questions throughout the day.

From Reykjavik, you'll head to West Iceland. This region has a rich cultural heritage, and you can learn more about it as you travel. Your guide will take you to gorgeous natural settings in the countryside, allowing you to step back from fast-paced sightseeing and immerse yourself in rural Iceland.

As you explore the region, you'll make frequent stops, visiting stunning landscapes like the Hraunfossar waterfall, far-stretching lava fields, the Hvalfjordur fjord, and dramatic hot springs. You'll also spend time at farms, eating local delicacies and meeting the farmers growing and producing the food.

On arrival in West Iceland, your group will stop at a farm for a picnic. You can taste some local specialties and chat with the farmers. Talking to Icelandic farmers will help you understand the challenges of food production in Iceland. You'll learn about traditional growing methods and how modern innovation has changed how farmers grow their produce. 

Your guide will also tell you more about the area's geothermal greenhouses and how they allow Icelanders to grow fresh fruits and vegetables. As you learn, you'll get to try some tasty treats typical in the area.

In addition to samples at each farm stop, you'll enjoy a group lunch at a restaurant. During the excursion, you can expect to try lamb, cheese, traditional skyr (a dairy product similar to Greek yogurt), organic vegetables, and juicy strawberries. You can also sample some geothermal rye bread, a local delicacy. Vegetarian options are available upon request. Please let the operator know in advance so they can organize this.

Other stops today include the Deildartunguhver hot spring, Europe's highest-flowing hot spring. You'll also go to a goat farm, home to the oldest goat breed in Europe.

At the end of the tour, you will be dropped off back in the center of Reykjavik, ready to continue your adventures in Iceland or head home.

Don't miss out on your chance to experience the combination of scenic nature and culinary delights with this small-group nine-hour West Iceland food tour from Reykjavik. Check availability now by choosing a date.
