What You Can Expect

Golden Circle Gourmet Food Tasting Tour

Visit the Gullfoss waterfall on this full-day foodie trip

Although Iceland isn’t typically known for its cuisine (yet!), Reykjavik and surrounds are home to a burgeoning foodie scene inspired by the region’s bounty of fresh meats, fish and dairy. Begin your full-day culinary tour with pickup at your Reykjavík hotel, or meet your guide at the centrally located Hafnarstræti, and climb aboard a comfortable coach.
To give your appetite a chance to warm up, make a pit stop at the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Thingvellir National Park. Learn about the geologic and political history of this protected area, which spans two tectonic plates and was the founding site of Iceland’s parliament in 930.
For your first bite of the day, enjoy a hearty, farm-fresh meal at Efstidalur, a modern working farm. Learn about small-scale Icelandic dairy, fish and game industries while savoring specialties produced right on site, such as feta cheese, homemade bread, roast beef and trout caught from the nearby river Útey. Top it off with a taste of a milky drink passed down by the Vikings!
Take some time to digest with a visit to the spectacular Gullfoss waterfall and surrounding volcanic fields dotted with geothermal hot springs and geysers. Make your way to a local greenhouse, where farmers have learned to cultivate Mediterranean vegetables like tomatoes even in the chilly northern climate.
Your final stop is Islenskibærin, a classic Nordic turf house. Settle in to a cozy dining room under the green roof for a sampling of regional favorites like smoked lamb, flatbread, dried fish and pancakes topped with rhubarb jelly.
Your stomach satisfied, relax on the return drive to Reykjavik, where your tour concludes with hotel drop-off in the early evening.

This tour was great, the Golden Circle sights are awesome. The extra time this tour took meant you actually got to enjoy the sights instead of having a mere twenty minutes at each place like on some tours. And we went to like four other places.
