The Reykjavík pub crawl will take you from one bar to another with a great group of people and a friendly local guide. Experience the absolute best the Reykjavik’s nightlife has to offer through excellent cocktails, premium Icelandic beer, the infamous Brennivín and some icelandic tastings such as the epic hot dog and fermented shark!

The Reykjavík pub crawl is perfect for anyone who is traveling by themselves, with friends or in a group.

We start our night at a fantastic cocktail bar in Reykjavik where we will try some delicious Icelandic cocktails, crafted by some of Iceland’s most talented bartenders. The next steps will a greatly synchronized, sequence of bar hopping. Starting at one of Reykjavik’s most popular bars where we will enjoy our famous ‘off-menu’ Coco-Puffs Cocktail. Going next try, the famous Brennivín snaps and the fermented shark (only for the most dare-minded). Keep in mind though this local delicacy dates back to the Viking ages, so if you want to go full Viking, this is the best way!

But the tour is far from being over. The next stop is at famous tiny little hot dog stand everyone is talking about. Here we will enjoy this legendary thing Icelanders call a pylsa. Now we are ready and next aim is for the largest nightclub in Reykjavik, VIP of course!

But the step into the wild nightclub is a step out of the crawl as it officially ends upon your arrival. From there, the night is completely up to you, if you want to party the night away with your new friends or call it a night and get that beauty sleep before your next day of travels.

Please note

You need to have reached the age of 20 to join the tour due to the fact that 20 is the legal age limit for drinking alcohol in Iceland.

What does meet on location entail?

Meet on location means travelling to the location of the tour yourself and then meeting our tour guides rather than being picked up and taken to the location.

When did beer become legal in Iceland?

Iceland struggled to seek independence from Denmark and because beer was associated with Denmark it was very much frowned upon. This is what led to the banning of beer. The 1st of March 1989 saw the legalisation of beer in Iceland after 74 years.

How is it best to be ready for a pick-up for a tour with Arctic Adventures?

This is a great question. We ask all participants to be ready from the start of the pickup time indicated. This is because you may well be the first pick up of the day. Please be at your assigned location at the start time that you chose when booking the tour.

Here you should wait for your guide.

Have your email and phone number listed with us so we can contact you if we run into any trouble finding you.

Can I drink alcohol before or during Arctic Adventures tours?

Before and during activities on the multi-day tours consumption of alcohol is prohibited. If we suspect that a participant is intoxicated, we will prohibit them from joining the activity.

After the activities of the day are finished, you are welcome to have a drink and relax.

Do you offer any family friendly tours, for younger children?

Yes, we do. Langjökull Ice Cave is a magical experience, the tour has no minimum age and is a wonderful option for the whole family. Whale Watching with our partner company Elding has been a favourite with families traveling with young children, these guys have a great success rate in seeing whales (upwards of 98% in the summertime).

Another option would be the Landmannalaugar Safari on this tour you get to explore parts of the Icelandic highlands and bathe in natural hot springs. Most of our jeep tours are also suitable for children over the age of 6 years old. If you would like a nice and relaxing experience we would also recommend the Golden Circle & Secret Lagoon tour.

Can the itinerary for the tour change?

Your safety is our number one priority! Keeping this in mind, Arctic Adventures reserves the right to adjust the itinerary and/or take different routes depending on conditions. Please read more information in our cancellation policy.

Is there a guide on each Arctic Adventures tour?

Yes, there is a specially trained and certified guide on each of our tours. The only exception to this is for our self-drive tours.

All of our tours are guided in English.

Can the guide advise if I am eligible for rescheduling the tour and/or a refund?

No, for all your questions and concerns you would need to contact our customer service.

What type of power outlets are used in Iceland? Do I need to bring an adapter?

The standard in Iceland is 230V and 50Hz and we use F-type power sockets and plugs, so you might have to bring an adaptor if you are visiting from UK, USA, Canada or other countries using a different voltage, Hz or plugs.

How are the tours rated in terms of difficulty?

Our tours are split into four different categories that help participants to understand what to expect from the tour. The categories are Easy, Moderate, Challenging and Demanding. Each tour is rated making it easier to find tours that suit you.

How does carbon offsetting work?

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at time of booking. The Kolviður Fund is the oldest, most respected carbon offsetting program in Iceland. With your support, one tree will be planted in special Kolviður forests in Iceland to carbon offset your tour with us. Kolviður forests are strategically planted to absorb the maximum amount of CO2 and the forests are protected for a minimum of 60 years. During their lifetime the trees absorb carbon and store it in their root system, trunk and branches. Trees also prevent soil erosion and maintain storage of carbon in the soil.
