Overview
Finding authentic places to eat can be tricky in an unfamiliar place. Take the guesswork out of your visit to Reykjavík on this guided walking tour that takes you to at least six different spots around the capital, including the city's oldest restaurant and a much-loved hot dog stand. In a small group of no more than 12, learn about Iceland's culinary history and traditions as you sample such dishes as Icelandic meat soup, skyr, lobster soup, and even some fermented shark.
What to Expect
If you’re a bit of a food lover, then a casual stroll around Reykjavik sampling traditional dishes from some favorite spots is going to be your little slice of heaven.

Sample at great variety of Icelandic dishes; both traditional classics and modern favorites. Your guide knows all the best spots to get the famous Icelandic lamb soup (just like mamma makes it), Skyr (a type of yoghurt) and delicious lobster soup. You can even try some fermented shark if you dare.

Keep warm with a belly full of good food.

Icelandic food isn’t well known by the rest of the world.  There are long, dark winters where locals spend a lot of time indoors. There is an abundance of fresh meat, fish and dairy.

You’ll learn what the Vikings ate and how Icelandic people have survived harsh winters thanks to the special cooking and preserving methods.

During the tour you will walk around 2.5km, making plenty of stops along the way.  With no more than 12 people on a tour, you’ll be able to ask any questions about Icelandic food and culture making a few new friends along the way.  And, you certainly won’t leave feeling hungry!

Bon appetite! Or, as we say in Iceland ”Verði þér að góðu.”
