Meet your guide and board a coach for the short and scenic drive through Hafnarfjörður to the 64° Reykjavík Distillery. Located in the town of lava, Vikings and elves, 64° Reykjavík was established in 2009 and is the first Icelandic distillery of its kind.

This is a special behind-the-scenes tour so, when you arrive at the distillery, you'll be greeted by the owner, Snorri Jonsson. Snorri is an expert on Iceland's old-time foraging culture. He will personally guide you through the distillery, offering snippets of history, explaining the process and, of course, letting you taste his handcrafted spirits.

Jonsson and his team of distillers are passionate about capturing the diverse flavors of Iceland, and they harvest all the ingredients locally, from blueberries, juniper, crowberry and rhubarb to wild herbs. This fun and informative visit sets the tone for a very personalized and intimate glimpse of Reykjavík.

Notes:

In the unusual event that owner Snorri Jonsson is not available to greet you, another distiller will lead you through the facility. Minimum age to sample the spirits is 20 years.
