Get an understanding of the different foods in Iceland by sampling typical Iceland dishes. Lamb and also root vegetables such as rutabagas and carrots are popular here. Of course, no journey through Iceland is complete without trying saltfiskur (dried and salted fish) or harofiskur (jerky type fish). And when it is time for the end of you meal, you can't go past mondlukaka (almond cake).
A wise person once said: that it is far better to see a place once than to be told about it many times. With its stunning beauty Iceland will more than live up to your expectations.
