Join us in June 2019 on a wonderful rustic food and cooking holiday! Summer in Iceland is all about celebrating the longest of days and making the most of the countryside and coast in full colour and bloom. Surrounded by the finest freshest ingredients, and with small food producers and secret corners of Iceland waiting to be discovered, what better than to join us for our Al Fresco food and cooking holiday? 

Combining some fine dining and a couple of nights in Reykjavik with a detailed introduction to the history of Icelandic food, farming and dairying, we focus mainly on time in the beautiful and varied countryside of West Iceland where we’ll be cooking, eating and walking. Travelling by bus, with utensils and primus on board we’ll  enjoy outdoor meals along the way, visiting farms and food producers and staying in rustic farmhouses.  Eat on the coast, in a meadow, beside a stream, on a lava field…wonderful local produce prepared and cooked in the company of one of Iceland’s leading food gurus, Eirný Sigurðardóttir, who’ll inform, entertain and rally the support of the small group travelling with her.

Iceland Al Fresco is taking place in June 2019, it’s a 7 day holiday starting and ending in Reykjavik with options to add on extra days before or afterwards for more food related enjoyment or anything else. In keeping with all other Iceland Traveller holidays, the programme will be carefully planned and organised and all of the details clearly explained.

We’ll be launching the holiday at our local Food Festival in Surbiton, Surrey on May 11 2018, when Eirny will be presenting her Icelandic Cheese and Skyr supper followed by two days at the Surbiton Village Fete. More here about Eirny and the Surbiton Food Festival 2018.  For enquiries or more information about Iceland Al Fresco, please contact us. While we finalise the plans for this holiday, we are gathering the names of those who are interested to know more. Thank you.
