Take a break from all the action and spend a quiet afternoon enjoying homemade tea and snacks with a local in Selfoss town, South Iceland. Travelers looking for some cozy activity of trying traditional food and drink while learning about Icelandic culture should book this tour.

You will join Jessica at her cozy turf house, known as Tonabaer, in Selfoss town, South Iceland. You can make travel arrangements or pay a small additional fee for a pickup and drop-off service to get there.

No special equipment is required for this tour. All you need to bring is your friendliness, enthusiasm for Iceland's culture, and a big appetite for Icelandic cuisine.

However, if you have any dietary restrictions or food allergies, please say so ahead of time so special arrangements can be made for you. Additionally, anyone with pet allergies should be aware there are animals in the household.

Jessica will welcome you to her home, greeting you with a hot cup of tea or coffee, depending on your preference, and some homemade Icelandic pastries and snacks she baked herself. Relax and enjoy the warm atmosphere of the turf house and get to know the day-to-day life of an Icelander.

Jessica will show you around her home and offer tips on traveling like a local in Iceland. In addition, she is a talented and passionate home chef, so she can recommend local delicacies that a simple guidebook can't give you and tell you how Icelandic cooking differs from regional cooking worldwide.

Iceland has many traditional tea-time snacks and pastries that you'll have the chance to try during your time with Jessica. Icelandic flatbread, for example, is an instant favorite for many, as this crispy bread is typically served with butter and decadent, thin slices of smoked lamb leg.

If your tastes trend toward the sweet side, you're in luck, as some popular pastry options include jam and whipped cream-filled pancakes, twisted doughnuts, and chocolate-glazed cinnamon buns.

The food served will depend on your visit, as Jessica often changes the menu for each tour to give you a unique and memorable experience.

Enjoy your cozy afternoon in Tonabaer and stay for one or two hours, depending on your schedule. This experience lets you enjoy the homestyle atmosphere that a regular South Iceland tour could not provide.

After your visit, you can enjoy a walk around Selfoss town, the central residential area in South Iceland. The city offers historic buildings, beautiful sites, and delicious Icelandic dining.

At an extra cost, you can even choose to be dropped off at your preferred spot in Selfoss town before returning home.

Take advantage of this chance to experience the excellent hospitality of Icelanders and taste some delicious homemade Icelandic food in the lovely town of Selfoss. Check availability now by choosing a date.
