DifficultyVery Easy

Get to know traditional Icelandic cuisine by visiting farms in the beautiful Hvalfjordur fjord on this fabulous tour!

What to expect?

Just off the border of Reykjavik we leave the main road to follow the shoreline around the Hvalfjordur fjord. This area, once buzzing with activity, is now an oasis of calmness, with farms tucked away between the ocean and the mountains. Get an insight into the life on a typical Icelandic farm, taste local treats and enjoy the stunning scenery at an easy going pace.

This tour leads us through the subtle wonders of Hvalfjörður. On one hand the ocean, on the other mountains and hills. In between them the farms. Some of the farms in this area have been there since the settlement of Iceland. Farming has changed and the farmers have changed, but they keep cultivating the land and taking care of their animals. The farmers we visit open their doors to us, show us around and share their stories.

The scenery is stunning in its soft beauty. Rivers and waterfalls, hills and mountains, the coastline and small islands; there is plenty to please the eye. Along the way we sample local treats from the farms we visit and other local producers, all of it delicious, high quality food combining traditions and innovation.

The tour starts at 10 am and the duration is 5 hours.
