Cheers for Reykjavík!

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 the 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 the 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 the 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: The age limit is 20 years - this is the legal age limit for drinking alcohol in Iceland.


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.

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.

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 super 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.

We’ve partnered with the Kolviður Fund in a new carbon offsetting program, which passengers can select to participate in at the 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.
