Are you a food lover? Explore Icelandic food from farm to table and visit the most popular natural Icelandic landmarks.
We start with a trip to Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site since 2004 and where the Icelandic parliament, Alþingi, was formed in 930 AD.
It’s then on to the cozy farm of Efstidalur, a modern working Icelandic farm. Look forward to some treats – their own ice cream, Icelandic’s wonder food – skyr, feta cheese, mysa – a Viking soft drink, carpaccio and bruschetta. And that’s for starters. Be sure to leave room for homemade soup and bread, roast beef and fresh trout.
After whetting your appetite we visit Gullfoss waterfall. This can be experienced up close, on the rocks or at the viewing platform above. We then continue to the geothermal area around Geysir and the sprouting Strokkur.
After these national landmarks, we stop at Friðheimar, a little piece of the Mediterranean in Iceland, thanks to greenhouses that produce tomatoes all year round. Learn all about tomatoes and taste their delicious foods: bruschetta, homegrown vegetables and their mouthwatering tomato schnapps.
Last but not least, we visit Islenski bærinn, one of Iceland‘s best preserved turfed farms, to sample the most traditional, Icelandic food: dry fish and seaweed, flat bread and smoked lamb, pancakes with whipped cream and rhubarb jelly and fresh honey and herbal tea. Yum!
