Immerse yourself in the unique culture of Iceland by joining this private local food and wine tasting with entrance to the Hvammsvik Hot Springs in West Iceland. Travelers looking for a relaxed yet exciting experience near Reykjavik, under the northern lights or the midnight sun, should book this tour today.

For your convenience, this private tour in Iceland begins in Iceland's capital city, Reykjavik. Your private tour guide will pick you up from your hotel or at your preferred meeting point in the city.

On board a spacious private car, the adventure takes you on a 45-minute drive north of the capital to your first destination, Hvammsvik hot springs.

Hvammsvik is a beautiful nature resort and geothermal spa in West Iceland, ranked first by Time Out global magazine in the best things to do in the world in 2023. The attraction features eight geothermal pools made from underground and seawater.

While geothermal bathing in Hvammsvik, you can relax while surrounded by nature. The spa nestles in a sprawling farmland that extends to the beautiful Hvalfjordur fjord. This location lets you enjoy a panoramic view of the sea and the mountains dotting the area.

Apart from the entrance to Hvammsvik and access to its facilities, included in this tour package are the attraction's signature seafood soup and a complimentary drink.

Just a 20-minute drive from Hvammsvik is the private property of a local sommelier named Bjorn, your host for the night. Bjorn is a specialist with extensive knowledge of wines from all over the world.

The host welcomes you to his humble abode by the banks of a small lake called Medalfellsvatn, near the Hvalfjordur fjord. Next to his house is a small yet cozy room where he teaches wine courses to enthusiasts like yourself. But tonight, your private group will have it exclusively for a wine and food pairing.

Bjorn changes the menu occasionally to ensure you're being served only the best dishes. For example, he may offer main courses featuring popular Icelandic meals like a lamb, fish, seafood, or vegetables. 

Regardless of what you get during your tour, the host will serve only the freshest local ingredients.

More importantly, you'll taste high-rated wines sourced from different countries. To make the food and wine tasting experience extra special, the host will tell you exciting trivia about wines and Iceland.

Depending on the season and weather conditions, a bonus highlight of this day trip is northern lights viewing. While enjoying your meal and wine, you have an excellent opportunity to see the magical aurora borealis of Iceland.

Once you spot the curtain-like colorful lights dancing in the skies, don't forget to snap some photos, as they only last a few minutes.

After a satisfying time in the countryside, your culture tour ends as you return to Reykjavik.
