Explore the city of Reykjavík through the local food on this mouth-watering walking tour. Learn about the history and culture of this beautiful city while dining on traditional Icelandic cuisine. This tour is your doorway to the ultimate Icelandic food and culture experience and should not be missed by any food-lovers.

You will get a chance to experience food traditions dating back hundreds of years as well as a few more recent ones. You’ll get to try the grass fed and free roaming Icelandic lamb and taste Skyr, which has been a part of Icelandic cuisine for over a thousand years. You’ll sample the best local cheese, enjoy a homemade ice cream from a family run business and visit Reykjavík’s famous hot dog stand.

The tour starts at Harpa Concert Hall, where you will meet your local guide who will take you to some of the city’s most beautiful attractions and inform you about Icelandic culinary traditions; how some of them have changed and how others have remained the same for centuries.

This tour will give you a great understanding of the city, and you will gain an insider's knowledge of the best places to eat in Reykjavík. Your guide will take you through the main streets of downtown Reykjavík to the most popular restaurants, as well as take you off the beaten path to some secret local hangouts. You will visit selected eateries for both a casual and a fine dining experience.

The menu for this tour has been hand-selected for the season, so you’ll be treated to the best culinary delights available. The tour focuses on the most delicious Icelandic cuisine, and so it leaves out some of the less appetising dishes such as fermented shark and ram testicles. However, your local guide will be more than happy to suggest to you where you can find those things.

Bring your appetite and don’t miss out on this cultural experience. Check availability by choosing a date.

We had a great culinary trip with Tinna through Reykjavík! She told us many interesting facts about the Icelandic culture and the food tasted very good!

Very good tour. The guide (Alexandra) was knowledgeable and amusing, adding interesting facts about both the food and areas visited. The food itself was excellent, my only regret was due to being booked fairly late in the holiday I could not re visit some of the places covered. I went on four trips whilst in Reykjavik, this was the best. Recommended.

This tour was amazing! Our guide was Anna Sara and she was funny, personable and knowledgeable. It was a great way to learn about the city, see some great sites, and most importantly, try some great local food. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Reykjavic!
