Full description
Skál, my friend! (that’s ‘cheers’ in Icelandic).

One of the best ways to get a feel for a new city is to sit down and have a few beers with the locals. 

The Icelandic Beer Lovers’ Tour is your chance to get a heads-up on the best Icelandic craft beers to enjoy on your trip.  Icelandic people have a short but proud history of making beer (they need to put their lovely, fresh water to good use). They'll fill you in on the history of beer from the Vikings, right through to the resurgence of microbreweries today. 

Did you know that beer was once banned in Iceland for 74 years? Thankfully, this is not the case anymore!  You’ll learn all about this bizarre story, and their unique drinking culture on the tour.

The beer tasting tour is guaranteed to leave you with a warm buzz. This isn’t your average pubcrawl, you'll some of the favorite bars in Reykjavik where you’ll get the chance to sample 10 different Icelandic beers. You might even be able to sample  a brand new craft beer from an Icelandic microbrewery that isn’t available on the market yet.

The group sizes are small so you can chat about not just beer, but all things Icelandic. 
The tour runs from daily 5 pm, It’s the perfect way to kick off your night in Reykjavik, or make the most of your stopover.  You can even pick your guide's brain about the best place to eat after the tour or where to party if your night is heading that way. 

There’s nothing better than relaxing in the pub, having a beer with new friends.
