As a vibrant coastal city, the top food tours in Reykjavik often have fresh seafood featuring heavily on the menu. However, because of the harsh winters, the local cuisine can range from rather basic, to the very creative. Although, having said that, we also have some hidden gems available within our tours.
The remoteness of the Capital can also make it expensive, which means finding exactly what you want to eat when on a budget quite challenging.
However, by joining our food tours in Reykjavik, you can take away any stress as you know exactly what you’re spending in advance.
