Itinerary

Experience Reykjavík through its local food

When you meet your local food walk guide at Harpa Concert Hall you can look forward to three to four hours of the most delicious tastes within Icelandic cuisine, and the best sights to be found in the heart of Reykjavík.

First and foremost, you will experience Reykjavík through sampling the local food. On this unique walking tour, over three to four hours we will visit five or six unique restaurants to try their best Icelandic culinary delicacies. The restaurants have been selected by your specialist local food guide for one reason only – they offer the most delightful Icelandic food to entrance your sense of taste.

Some of these places are famous ‘must-visit Reykjavík restaurants’, and others are little-known but characterful local places which are hidden down the back streets of the city.

This really is a walking tour for foodies, so make sure you wear your comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather! Along the way, you will see some of the best-known buildings and sights in Reykjavík and learn some fascinating stories about them. You can rest assured your guide has an eye for the quirky and the less obvious, so you will get to know some amazing tidbits of information as you wander around. Your stream of footsteps will frequently be punctuated by another ´food visit’, and yet more great culinary wonders to try. So, you will never be walking for long without an interesting and delicious food break.

We want you to enjoy the wonderful tastes at the heart of Icelandic cuisine, as well as giving you a taste of Icelandic history in more ways than one. You will see the buildings of Reykjavík, and learn some of their stories, and among many other delicacies, you will get to taste the famous Icelandic Skyr.

This beautiful and somewhat yogurt-like dairy product goes right back to the time when Iceland was settled by the Vikings, more than 1100 years. How do we know this? There are references to Skyr in the legendary Icelandic Sagas. Of course, we can say this about other foods you will be offered, lamb and fish featured heavily in the Icelandic diet right from the beginning.

This Reykjavík food tour is unique and family-friendly. You will be introduced to and taste delicious Icelandic food and see some of Reykjavík´s famous places with a fun and food-loving local guide.

On this tour, you will not be offered any of the more bizarre Icelandic food items you may have heard of – we want you to enjoy the foods within Icelandic cuisine which are more appealing to overseas palates.

  • Bring with you: Comfortable walking shoes, clothes suitable for the weather conditions and rainwear.
  • You meet your Reykjavík Food Walk guide at Harpa Concert Hall, Austurbakki 2, 101 Reykjavík.

Please note: You will only be offered the most delightful items to be found within Icelandic cuisine. You will not be given things like fermented and sour sheep heads. If you would like to taste these your guide can certainly advise you where to find them, though.
