Coffee on the Arctic Circle

[vslider name="12"]

Coffee on the Arctic Circle

What is it about?

Arctic CircleIn Iceland coffee is an institution. With around 8.7 kilos of beans every year, this small island in the north drinks more coffee per capita than France and the UK combined. Why?

I will take you for a tour around the small cafes in Reykjavik where we will try out and see the art of Icelandic coffee brewing. A great way to spend your time while you wait for the northern lights to show up. Competition is very harsh and many high quality venues to discover, the only question is, how many cups of coffee can you take?

This activity is suitable for everyone, including beginners having no coffee drinking experience at all!

The cost is ISK 6000.
