The Best Ice Cream Shop in Reykjavik

Which is the best Ice Cream Parlor in Reykjavik?

When it comes to ice cream, we can’t help but recommend Valdis, the most popular ice cream parlor here in Reykjavik. Whether you’re looking for a dessert, a quick snack, or a refreshing treat on a hot summer day, Valdis has got you covered. Their ice cream is made from creamy milk and flavored with a sweetener, and they achieve that perfect semi-solid texture by freezing the mixture at very low temperatures.


Valdis is located in the harbor area of the city, known as Grandagarður, and they take pride in using only local ingredients to create their wide range of delicious flavors. The staff at Valdis are incredibly friendly, helpful, and always make sure you have a fantastic experience. While there is no sit-in option available and parking can be limited, that doesn’t stop visitors from enjoying their tasty ice cream while exploring the town.

According to numerous reviews, Valdis is the go-to ice cream parlor in town. They have a convenient ticketing system to manage the flow of customers, ensuring that everyone gets their ice cream in a timely manner. No matter the season, Valdis is always open until 11 pm, giving you plenty of time to sample their various flavors. And speaking of flavors, Valdis is famous for their generous scoops and reasonable prices. You can enjoy your ice cream in a cone or a small tub, and they even offer waffles as an option.
