Incredible food!
, Nov 2019
The 8 course menu from start to finish was WONDERFUL! The meal started with an incredible violet infused butter sprinkled with licorice lava salt -a soft lightly sweet taste that made you look forward to what was coming next! The lobster soup, delicate in it's flavor, & the reindeer were our favorites, the filets were tender & flavorful-perfectly prepared. The Cruise was very nice, cold but exhilarating. The boat is the nicest on the harbor for these tours, had relatively new warm suits & enough for everyone aboard. We did get a bit of a light show and the boat captain stayed out longer just in case the lights brighter. We went out the next night & got an incredible 2 hour long Northern lights show. This was a great value & a wonderful way to start our vacation in Iceland!

Food was fine, no variance from a fixed menu and staff not over welcoming and did rush you along during the meal.

TOUR OPERATOR COMMENT: If I understand correctly this review was submitted in 2018 but they came for the Kopar & Northern Lights tour in 2016 - the set-up for this combo has not changed so any response will still be valid for customers booking in 2018 and 2019. When you book the Kopar & Northern Lights combo, you are booking a set menu that is a 9 course 'Adventure Menu'. The tour description states that this is a 9 course menu and gives examples of different courses. Clients are welcome to purchase additional food for an extra cost, or book just the Northern Lights tour and dine at Kopar without a set menu, paying on arrival.

Dinner was fantastic, a must do while in Reykjavik!! Unfortunately the clouds and a full moon made seeing the Northern Lights impossible. My only suggestion would be that they cut the boat ride short when clouds, moon and very little solar activity are in concert. By the end of the ride we were feeling a little captive.

The food was good- tasty and a variety of disges. Waitstaff was friendly and attentive. The boat ride was well organized and the narration was informative. Brace yourself though- I've never been colder in my life. They provide good coveralls, just make sure they don't run out of your size. Saw the lights even though it was close to the end of the season. Overall definitely recommend this combo tour. My only recommendation would be to make it a little easier to find the boat after the dinner.

Our first evening, we enjoyed a 9-course dinner at Kopar in the Old Harbor. Starters- Icelandic scallops ceviche with dill mayonnaise and wagame salad Cod tongues with sherry and garlic cream cheese and lemon dip and Duck spring rolls with date sauce and pear salad. Main courses- Baked ling with potatoes, cauliflower, and creamy white wine sauce Salted filet of Icelandic cod with butternut squash purée, quinoa salad, and mandarin sauce Icelandic filet of lamb with truffle mashed potatoes, Bernaise sauce, and mushroom and port purée. Desserts- Dalm cheesecake with skyr sorbet and raspberry sauce Caramel cake with lemon sorbet, Italian meringue, dulce de leche, and white chocolate mousse Skyr almond crème brulée with skyr pudding, apple compote, and blueberry sorbet. The Northern Lights are still a mystery!

Bad weather caused me to postphone the cruise from the schedulled day, but dinner went on as scheduled and was very good. A great introduction to Icelandic food traditions. So, two days later we had crystal clear weather and the cruise went off as scheduled. It was cold and I had good cold weather gear of my own, but the boat had survival suits available for those not so warmly dressed. The lights showed up late and the captian intentionally slowed our return to port, stretching the cruise out to over 3 hours to give us a maximum viewing experience. Well worth it. FYI Kopar is located right in the Old Harbor and the cruise office is just a few steps away, as is the boarding place for the boat. Very convenient.

This was an amazing experience. The whole fine dining experience in the Kopar restaurant was exceptional, the staff very attentive and every course superb. Even though we didn't get to see the Northern Lights the boat was brilliant, the atmosphere on board was lovely the crew brilliant, we even had 3 poems read out over the loudspeaker about the Lights. Highly Recommended.
