My husband and I recently travelled to Iceland (July 2016). We were celebrating my 50th birthday and my husband was determined to make this a memorable one. Thanks to Ymir, he delivered in spades. Our private gourmet tour with Ymir is by far the highlight of our trip. Within the first few minutes of meeting Ymir, I felt like we were lifelong, kindred, food loving spirits. With every story, farmhouse stop, meal, and viking inspired story, I thought to myself, there’s no way Ymir can top this and boy did he!!! Magical is an understatement. Ymir is warm, entertaining, genuine, not to mention passionate about food and providing his guests with a unique experience. I was mesmerized by his Viking stories, childhood stories, travel adventures and mischievousness. Be careful what you wish for…he WILL make it happen. We have already recommended Ymir to fellow foodies. Can’t wait to see what my husband plans for my birthday next year, this is not easily topped, the bar has been set very, very high. Ymir isn’t just a guide, we consider him a friend and one we can’t wait to see again!
The food is beyond amazing, what an incredible journey and exposure to delicious Icelandic cuisine. Definitely the highlight of our trip. There’s nothing that beats an amazing host, decant food, engaging, mesmerizing stories. Definitely a must if you’re planning a trip to Iceland and love food as much as we do. Ymir is a gem!
