Book this culinary adventure and experience the true taste of Iceland's nature while being transported back to the golden age of the Vikings. This is the perfect opportunity for anyone looking for a historical experience over a delicious dinner in the countryside.

You'll get to enjoy a spectacular four-course meal inspired by the Vikings with a touch of modern culinary techniques. Quench your thirst by drinking through a horn, eat with cutlery forged in fire and become strengthened by the local ingredients that will leave you feeling like a true Viking!

On this tour, you'll get to experience some of Iceland's finest delicacies in a truly unique environment. The Ingólfsskáli Viking longhouse is among the largest in Iceland, and it is decorated with beautiful wood carvings, shields and pelts honouring Iceland’s cultural heritage and traditions.

Seasonality and availability played a large role in the food that Vikings could gather and harvest and equally, this informs the dishes served at different times of the year to maintain a high degree of authenticity.

On the menu, you'll find a variety of cured and smoked meat and fish, slow-cooked lamb that has been prepared by the same method for over 35 years topped off with a delicious dessert.

While enjoying the delicious food you will get the chance to enjoy what the Vikings considered the drink of kings and gods; namely mead. Brewed by the first Icelandic meadery, this drink is unique in taste and has won awards for its quality and flavour.

Upon arrival, your host will take you through the story behind the building and the vision that has been the backbone of this family restaurant for over 35 years. During dinner, you'll get to hear the story behind the food, the ways the Vikings would store and preserve it and how some of the most well-known Icelandic delicacies came about.

This is an exceptional opportunity to take a step back in time and enjoy an all-encompassing fun night in an awe-inspiring environment. Check availability by choosing a date.
