Best food in Iceland
Much of Iceland’s fascinating food is steeped in the history of Viking times and woven with greater Nordic culture. Trafalgar will indulge you in many obscure delicacies from this self-sufficient country and our tours of Iceland start and end with a surprising local dish.
Smoked PuffinDespite their fishing heritage, Icelanders take much of their cuisine from the land. The national bird of Iceland, the puffin, is one that historically saved its residents from starvation. Today, it is considered a local delicacy. Sample it for yourself accompanied by lashings of delicious blueberry sauce.
Icelandic hot dogHotdogs are abundant in Iceland, found at petrol stations, roadside stands, malls and ferry terminals. They are most often made of local, organic, grass-fed lamb as a result of meat import restrictions and a population of sheep that doubles that of humans. Eat yours topped with sweet brown mustard, remoulade, capers, herbs and raw onions.
HardfiskurFor centuries, Hardfiskur has been a staple of Icelandic cuisine. This protein-rich snack is made by curing the bacteria of oily fish in the icy Atlantic air before pounding it soft with a mallet. See the fish hanging up to dry all over the island; an insight into traditional Nordic cooking processes.
