Delicious Golden Circle Food Tour

Explore Icelandic food from farm to table and visit some of the most popular natural landmarks in Iceland on the same tour!

We start with some stunning nature and a trip to magnificent Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004 and this is where the Icelandic parliament, Alþingi, was formed in 930 AD.

The next stop is the cosy farm of Efstidalur farm which offers a warm welcome and introduction to the workings of a modern, Icelandic farm. Look forward to tasting some treats, too – their freshly made colourful ice cream, skyr, feta cheese and mysa. Be sure to leave room for their homemade soup and bread, their roast beef and fresh trout from the river Útey.

After whetting your appetite we then visit Gullfoss waterfall. This thundering waterfall can be experienced up close, if you walk down to the rocks or you can climb to the viewing platform above. We then visit the hot spring and bubbling hot pots area around Geysir and the sprouting Strokkur, which frequently gushes water up to 30 meters in the air.

After these national landmarks, we stop at Friðheimar, a little piece of the Mediterranean in the middle of Iceland, thanks to a series of greenhouses that produce tomatoes all year round. Learn all about tomatoes and taste their delicious foods: Bruschetta, home grown vegetables and their mouth-watering tomato schnapps.

Last but not least we visit Íslenski bærinn, one of Iceland‘s best preserved turfed farms. In connection with the age old tradition of turf houses, here you can also taste some of the most traditionally Icelandic food. Icelandic food: dry fish and seaweed, flat bread and smoked lamb, pancakes with whipped cream and rhubarb jelly and fresh honey and herbal tea.
