There are 3 main reasons why I feel every traveler should experience this tour. To begin with, Iceland is known to have some of the best beer in the world - and on this tour you'll get to experience our absolute best picks that we think you'll love!

The beer history in Iceland is also quite unique, funny and strange (Did you know that beer was illegal in Iceland until 1989?) We'll go over our entertaining beer history while enjoying some great local craft beers!

Lastly, I feel this is the best way to meet other fun travelers and a local guide while visiting fantastic bars that you'll most likely not find on your own! In short, if you want a fun night out and to enjoying incredible beer with new friends - then this tour was made for you!"

Beer Tour was our best night in Reykjavik

After a 5 day driving around the South Ring Road we came back to Reykjavik and since the Northern Lights weren't going to happen we did a last minute booking of the Beer Tour that was happening that night. We had Anna as tour guide along with a small group of 5 and it was OUR BEST NIGHT IN REYKJAVIK. Anna has a lot of background/history of beer and it was a great time. We felt we made great friends with everyone on the tour at the very first venue.

Icelandic Beer is now my favorite beer!

And what a tour it is! You don't get just small tastings, you get BEER and a lot of it! Good local beer with back stories from our amazing guide, Alexandra. She was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable proponent of Icelandic beer and it's history. She quickly transformed a group of strangers into a group of friends making the evening even more enjoyable. Thanks Alexandra!

If you only have time to do one thing in Reykjavik. Book this!

We had an amazing time with our guide Karen, she had a lot of interesting stories and kept us laughing while also teaching us about Icelandic beer culture. We went to 3 bars, we never would have found on our own and had a lot of beer. If you’re looking for a laid back fun night in Reykjavik with beer in the menu, the Reykjavik Beer Tour is the ONLY choice!

    Where/when does the beer tour start? Is parking available?
    Our brilliant Reykjavik Beer tour begins at 5:00pm by the main entrance of Harpa Concert Hall, a big glass building, right in the heart of down town Reykjavik.

For guests driving their own car, there are multiple parking spots nearby – and underneath the building.
    What is included in this experience?
    Everything is included! As we explore the best of Iceland’s beer culture we usually stop at 3-4 unique bars and included is the fun walk in a small group with a local guide + tastings of over 7 Icelandic beers, a traditional Icelandic shot and bar snacks. In total there will be plenty to drink and you will become an expert of beers in Iceland before you know it!
    What is the duration of this tour & where does it end?
    The Reykjavik beer tour is approx. 3-4 hours and the duration mostly depends on how fast you drink … there is a lot of drinking to do!
