You will learn firsthand from Tyffi's kitchen how Icelanders lived off the land developing timeless recipes from ocean delicacies and mountain lamb. By the time you are tucked into your hotel at night you will have a good understanding of the unique and authentic Icelandic way of life.
The dinner tour is a tour that I designed to combine my chef´s experience and the tour guides education; I take people around the city and suburbs showing the guests the everyday life of Icelanders. I visit a few local stores, picking up groceries. The tour ends at my home in Kópavogur 10 min. drive from the city centre, where I cook for the guests. I introduce the traditional cuisine and the fine fish and meat, restaurants are using on their menus.
The reason I started these tours was, when travelling to other countries I sit on the bus from the airport
to the city center, gazing out the window wondering how the local inhabitant goes about his every day
life. Price pr.person 19.500 Isk. Minimum 2, max 8.
