Trying the traditional lamb soup on the Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour
Sampling Traditional food from Iceland on our Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour

Private Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour

Traditional Icelandic Food

When doing a Private Reykjavik food tour, don’t you want to try out the truly authentic food from Iceland?

With our selection of local food treats you can check off a lot of things on your Icelandic food bucket list, and you sure won’t be disappointed with the quality of the restaurants we handpicked as our partners.

The Reykjavik food walk is also good to get oriented in the old Reykjavik city center. All our guides are graduates from the Icelandic Tourist guide school but more importantly, they know how to entertain as well as to educate.

The only bad thing on this tour is the fermented shark, but hey, its an adventure and what does not kill you makes you stronger and cooler back home ;).

One of the best things about doing a food tour is getting a sense of the history of the country while eating something delicious & exciting. You will also get tips on Food, Fun & Drink for the rest of our stay in Reykjavik so perfect as one of the first stops while in Reykjavik.

This is, of course, a private food experience so we can start off anytime from 11 am – 19 pm depending on availability of our guides and we recommend to do the tour during the weekends because then we visit the Reykjavik Flea market extra because there is an excellent food market there that’s fun to stroll through. The Flea market is open from 11 am – 5 pm on Saturday and Sunday.


Our stops include a brilliant new Gastropub, the oldest restaurant in Reykjavik, the legendary hot dog stand, a favorite food market (if open), The authentic Seabaron down by the old Reykjavik harbor and Icelandic Fish and chips. Make sure you arrive hungry!

If you’re a food lover, then a leisurely stroll around the old Reykjavik city center, sampling traditional food from Iceland is going to be your kind of a foodie adventure.  You will learn what the Vikings ate and how Icelandic people have survived harsh winters thanks to our special cooking and preserving methods and then how our cuisine evolved to present day as young chefs are doing modern twists with the special Icelandic ingredients.

Our Reykjavik Food Lovers Tour samples many different Icelandic dishes; both traditional classics and modern favorites. We know the best spot to get the famous Icelandic lamb soup (just like mamma makes it), The Icelandic lamb hot dog, Skyr (a type of yogurt) and a delicious Icelandic lobster soup that some say is the best in the world, but you will have to be the judge of that :).  You can even try some fermented shark if you dare.

Maybe you just want to join our regular Reykjavik Food Tour which is daily at 5 pm?

“So much food! So much fun!”
The best part about the tour itself is the diversity of the food. Everything from street food to comfort food to fine dining – and plenty of it!
