What people are saying about Southern Region, Iceland

We were very glad that we decided to participate in this bread experience. The guide was sincerely happy to share information about the history and culture of Iceland. The bread was delicious! We went back to the hot springs in the evening and got to enjoy the northern lights during our soak. This tour was a lovely experience.

We lucked out and got the tour just for us… the guide was informative and made the experience super fun to learn about. The eating of the bread and fresh smoked trout afterwards was so delish!

It's a great way to enjoy some traditional Icelandic bread. It was sweet and slightly cakey and had great rye flavour and with the butter one of the best bites of bread in Iceland

Richie was an AMAZING tour guide!! He also very knowledgeable about the tasting notes and the process that goes into making the gins and whiskeys.

Very clear explanation about the geothermal bread, and very good bread by the way ! You can eat it the way you want !
