West Iceland Rustic Food Adventure July 10-20 2017
Reykjavik and South Iceland Culinary Special August 7-14 2017
In 2017, our two ‘Iceland’s Modern Kitchen’ journeys take place in July and August. New for 2017 is the tour to the beautiful West of Iceland and the dramatic south coast of the Westfjords with a rustic theme, staying in rural Iceland. Based on the success of our tour in 2016, the August tour is centred on Reykjavik and the South of Iceland, with a week long stay in 4* hotel accommodation and plenty of opportunities to dine and explore the fast growing food culture of the capital.
West Iceland Rustic Food Adventure
July 10-20 2017
To delve into Iceland’s food and farming culture, travelling into the rural backwaters is well worth the journey. Driving on remote roads and with the skills and knowledge of local guides, the West Iceland programme includes the southern coast of the beautiful Westfjords.
We have included coastal food interests as well as visits to geothermal, dairy and mixed farm producers, together with tastings and gourmet specialities. Staying out of Reykjavik means that accommodation varies between hotels and more modest farm guesthouses, and will also include a boat trip. This is a food journey through some wonderful landscapes, a superb snapshot of Iceland’s best scenery with opportunities for photography (beyond the plate) and some optional walking too.
Reykjavik and South Iceland Culinary Special
August 7-14 2017
During your time in Iceland expect to enjoy some of South Iceland’s finest culinary treats. From farm producers, home growers and small holders to Iceland’s finest restaurants learn about the development of this country’s intriguing food culture. The programme combines a mixture of guided visits and tastings, local must-do sightseeing and time to cook, dine and explore Reykjavik, from the comfort of a centrally located 4* Reykjavik hotel.
These holidays are organised for a group of 8 people so that we can visit our producers without overwhelming them, and to ensure that everyone in the group can enjoy the real peace and quiet of Iceland. To explore these rural areas, it’s necessary to have a driver and guide who can manage the terrain and add to the knowledge and understanding you’ll gain along the way.
Please contact us for more information, we will be delighted to tell you more.
