Finally got my dad to enjoy a food tour

I am someone who generally loves food tours and this one did no disappoint! Our guide was amazing made us feel very comfortable and relaxed. Fantastic food, you will be full for the rest of the day after the tour. My dad who hates the idea of food tours begrudgingly came with us on this tour. Afterwards he raved about it and said it was amazing! I have two kids approximately 10 years old, they both loved the tour!

Worth every penny!

We had a fabulous tour with Eygló. She was enthusiastic, knowledgeable and so fun! She told us so much about Iceland, it’s history and it’s food. The food was always waiting for us, we tasted a wide variety of delicious cuisines and had a great afternoon. This is a must do if you’re visiting Iceland.

Favorite experience of Iceland!

Our guide Tinna was AWESOME! She went above and beyond our expectations. Tinna was informative, very friendly and fit in like part of the family! We were able to experience not just the cultural foods and tour the city, but also the friendliness of the people who live in Iceland. The food tour was well worth it in every way! Make sure you come hungry!

Frequently Asked Questions

    Where does the food tour start and end?

    Our delicious Reykjavik Food tour begins by the main entrance of Harpa Concert Hall, a big glass building, right in the heart of down town Reykjavik. Harpa Concert Hall is easy to find and very centrally located on Austurbakki 2, 101 Reykjavík. Harpa is in walking distance from most hotels, hostels and apartments in Reykjavik. For guests driving their own car, there are multiple parking spots nearby – and underneath the building. Our tour always ends in the centre of downtown Reykjavik. Just a couple minutes walking from both our meeting location (Harpa Concert Hall) and most hotels in Reykjavik!

    Is everything included in the tour - or is the food cost separate?

    Yup! Of course, everything is included in our tour. So, all you have to do is to show up hungry like a wolf and we will take care of the rest! We visit 5-6 of our favourite restaurants and taste over 8 amazing local cuisines :)

    Cancellation / Refund Policy?

    Don’t you worry! We will always do everything in our power to reschedule your tour experience whenever possible & help you make the most of your time available in Reykjavik. For the Reykjavik Food Walk, a 15% booking fee is always non-refundable. And bookings cancelled with more than 24 hours are refunded full 85%. All bookings cancelled within 24 hours are not refundable.

    What if I have dietary restrictions or allergies?

    We do everything we can to accommodate all dietary restrictions and/or allergies :) We can easily arrange alternative options for our vegetarian and pescatarian guests and for gluten & lactose intolerants. Nuts, seeds, fruits & shellfish are also easy to avoid. If you have any dietary restrictions or allergies, please let us know in the 'special requests' section when you book and we will accommodate you the best we can! Vegans are more than welcome in our tour but unfortunately, the traditional Icelandic cuisine is not very welcoming for a vegan diet. Vegans can unfortunately not enjoy 90% of the cuisines in this tour.

    How much walking is there involved in the food tour?

    The walking distance in our Reykjavik Food tour is approx. 2 km or 1,2 miles but it can vary between tours :) The tour is really easy as we are never walking further than to our next restaurant where we will sit down and enjoy a delicious local cuisine. Furthermore, the walking is usually slow paced as we are exploring the city as we go!

    Is it possible to do a private food tour?

    Yes, it is of course possible to arrange a private foodie tour! Private tours are very popular with larger groups of friends and families. Simply send us a quick email through our website or directly to [email protected] and let us know of you group size and which date you had in mind. Our super friendly office team will get back to you right away!

    How many guests are in each tour?

    In our open Reykjavik Food tours we always keep the groups at maximum 11-13 guests. We do this to make the experience as personal and fun as possible! For private groups we can accommodate larger groups, feel free to get in touch at [email protected]
