Overview

We recommend this spectacular tasting tour for all the adventurous foodies. We explore some of Iceland's most stunning attractions along the Golden Circle route while getting a taste of nature's bounty at some of our favourite local farms.

What to expect?

For many of us, food and sightseeing are equally essential parts of the travel experience. On this tour, you get to explore Iceland‘s sightseeing highlights on the Golden Circle and enjoy sampling delicious local food specialties at selected farm-to-table establishments along the route.


The tour starts with an exploration of Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with great historical and geological significance. Next, we delve into food culture at Efstidalur, a dairy farm run by third-generation food lovers. While they make skyr, cheese, and Icelandic sour milk, it's their ice cream that has put them on the map. We'll get a taste of a variety of homemade Icelandic dairy foods, meat, and fish at the farm.

From there we will continue to Gullfoss, one of the nation's most beloved waterfalls. Following with a venture to Geysir, a unique geothermal area rife with hot springs, gushing steam vents and bubbling mud pots before our next tasty exploration.

Friðheimar geothermal greenhouse is a family-owned operation that grows hothouse tomatoes all-year-round, as well as a range of other food products. Here you'll get to sample the harvest including sweet tomatoes, mouth-watering chutneys, jams, as well as gain some insight into sustainable greenhouse horticulture.

On our way back to Reykjavik, we will stop by Íslenski Bærinn Turf House for a taste of some traditional Icelandic treats like pancakes with whipped cream and rhubarb jelly, flatbread, and perhaps a sip of meadowsweet honey and hot tea brewed from Icelandic moss. The Turf House is one of Iceland’s best-preserved turf farms, displaying the style of building that from the time of settlement kept Icelanders alive in the harsh Arctic climate.
