My daughter was a big fan of the ice cream, even in the cold weather. We even went twice during our time in Reykjavik. It was busy when we were there, so you have to take a number and they will call you number when it's your turn to order.

This is the best ice cream you will find in Reykjavik and it is worth the walk. It's placed a little out of the way on the far side of the marina but it's s nice walk through town. The ice cream is similar to gelato style and will not disappoint. We had the Oreo, chocolate and chocolate all were very good!

A warning: I read the reviews of this place and went to Valdis determined to order the peanut butter and the cinnamon cookie based on previous reviews. Neither of those flavors, or any other delicious-sounding flavor in previous reviews, were available and that was a crushing disappointment.

I managed to get past that and sampled a few. They're pretty nice about letting you taste what you want, which is nice. (Note: At least three of the flavors were licorice-based, which repelled me but might attract others.) I really liked the raspberry jam one they had when I was there.

This place is quite busy and the line extends out the front door, but they are good at using the ticket system to move people through. Definitely worth a visit while you're in Reykjavik.

Delicious homemade ice cream, with a great changing selection. There were flavours I had never even heard of anywhere else in the world. We found this place by accident and just had to return the next day! 4 ice creams ~2,000 kronur. Expensive for a tourist, but reasonable for Iceland.

Yes, the ice cream here is great. It is a small ice shop not far from the old harbor. Worth taking a stroll to after dinner.
