The Icelandic Sweet Tooth Tour is a delectable adventure for those who love everything sweet. This guided walking tour of downtown Reykjavik takes you on a journey through some of Iceland's most popular and beloved sweet treats. The bakeries, stores, pastry & candy sampled depend on the season, day, and time each tour is done, but you can be sure we will always enjoy plenty of Icelandic pastries, sweets, and more on our tours. The tour usually begins with a visit to a local bakery where you can sample traditional Icelandic pastries, such as kleina, a deep-fried doughnut-like pastry. You will, of course, learn about the history of these treats and how the bakers themselves make them. Next, you'll visit a specialty shop to indulge in some of the finest Icelandic chocolates. You'll discover the unique flavors and ingredients that make Icelandic chocolate stand out from the rest, such as the use of licorice, birch sugar, and local wild berries. It's worth mentioning that the Icelandic licorice is sweet and mild. The tour also includes visiting a local ice cream parlor to taste some of the creamiest and most delicious ice creams you'll ever try. You can choose from various flavors, including some unique to Iceland, like licorice and possibly skyr, the Icelandic dairy product. Finally, the tour ends with a stop at another famous candy shop where you can indulge in various Icelandic candies and sweets, possibly such as the iconic 'Draumur' chocolate bar or the delicious combo of Licorice and chocolate called Þristur. Don’t worry if you don’t like Licorice, we have other options for you, but you might fall in love with this chocolate & licorice combe by the end of our tour together. Throughout the tour, your expert guide will share their knowledge of Icelandic sweets and the country's culinary culture, making this an unforgettable experience for any sweet tooth. The City center of Reykjavik has a wealth of great bakeries & artisan stores. With our Reykjavik sweet tooth tour, you can explore the unique Icelandic pastries, candy & ice cream flavors.
