Travel to Iceland

An outdoor experience of spectacular natural beauty with glaciers, volcanoes, caves and natural hot pools, Iceland is a microcosm of rugged, real, and surreal scenery all bundled up on one little island. Being overwhelmed to the brink of tears of amazement from what you encounter on Iceland’s Ring Road, that circles the perimeter of the country, is a natural reaction for most. The landscape, peppered with mountains, lakes and countless waterfalls, changes almost every day providing perfect photo ops at every turn.

People, food and culture of Iceland

Located in the middle of the North Atlantic and one of the most sparsely populated countries in the world, Iceland was originally settled by emigrants from Scandinavia and the British Isles in the 10th century. Due to the country’s geographical location, it was mostly outside the influence of contemporary culture in Europe and America, until the late 19th century. Today, Icelandic people are very open to the world and are progressive, creative and self-reliant. Reykjavik, the capital, is a vibrant city with a hyperactive food and night scene. Icelanders are famous revellers. One of the perks of being surrounded by water is the abundance of delicious seafood. Hardfiskur is a popular delicacy and snack that is often had with Icelandic butter. A great dish to devour in the cold is the Plokkfiskur or fish stew. This rich and filling fish stew features white fish, such as cod mixed in a milk-based roux sauce and vegetables. Finally, there is Brennivin, the national liquor of Iceland that is made from fermented grain or potato mash. Literally translating into “Burning Wine”, this drink is not for the faint-hearted!
