Burns’ Night in the Icelandic style?

We’re all familiar with haggis, neeps and tatties but what about hákarl, svið and blóðmör? During the Romantic period in 19th century Iceland the feast of Thorri was revived, along with the addition of poetry recitals and speeches.   This combination of ceremony, special food to celebrate the occasion and plenty of toasts is very similar to the notion of Burn’s night […]

Celebrate Iceland’s amazing horses!

Family holidays on a farm, or time spent as a spectator or participant in the company of Icelandic horses is always a treat.  Hardy and incredibly hairy in the winter, sleek and shiny in the summer, when the herd is made even more stunning by the addition of beautiful multi-coloured foals. The Icelandic horse should be a feature of every […]

Dreaming of a white #Christmas in #Iceland

Still a few days left, and the Icelandic yuletide lads have nearly all arrived from their mountain hideouts to slam doors, steal sausages, gobble Skyr and lick bowls in the small towns, villages and in Reykjavik itself.  As soon as Christmas arrives, one of the mischievous group leaves each day until January 6th, the 13th day of Christmas in Iceland.

New Year festivities, gleðilegt nýtt ár

City spectacle, or countryside charm? With only a few hours of daylight in winter, Icelanders really know how to illuminate their homes, streets and towns. New Year’s Eve is a massive highlight and great spectacle to see. Twinkling trees, houses and shops beautifully decorated, the chance of the swirling Aurora visiting the night sky and in every community, warming bonfires […]

The Vikings are Here!

Among the artefacts on show are swords and axes, coins and jewellery, amulets and religious images.  At its centre, the exhibition includes the surviving timbers from a 37-metre Viking warship, the longest ever found. Of course, Iceland’s […]
