Visit Iceland: get started
ICELAND TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatLamb, seafood, Skyr (a mix between yogurt and cottage cheese), Icelandic rye bread, kleina (a beloved Icelandic pastry), and for the brave: fermented shark.
What to bring backAn Icelandic wool sweater, volcanic rocks, lava salts to bring Icelandic flavour to your kitchen, sand and beauty products from geo-thermal spas and, if you’re lucky, snapshots of the Northern Lights.
Fun FactIcelandic people are very imaginative—a portion of the nation even believes in the existence of elves and fairies (the huldufólk). There is an elf school in Reykjavik to teach you all about them, there have been protests against developments planned on elf territory, and there are even tiny elf shrines built across Iceland.
