Travel by taste - Taste of Nature


Taste of nature is a delicious day tour where we crisscross through quiet country roads into the heart of West Iceland. On the way we make frequent stops to enjoy the beautiful scenery, take short hikes and savour the local food. The highlight of the day is a farm visit where we hear about the life of Icelandic farmers and sample delicious artisanal food. West Iceland offers a good variety of stunning landscapes such as energetic waterfalls, rugged lava fields, salmon rivers, mountains and valleys and we have picked some less known natural jewels along our trail for this tour.

BEAUTIFUL SCENERY OFF THE BEATEN TRACK

Taste of Nature is a delicious day tour where we crisscross through quiet country roads into the heart of West Iceland. On the way we make frequent stops to enjoy the beautiful scenery, take short hikes and savour the local food. The highlight of the day is a farm visit where we hear about the life of Icelandic farmers and sample delicious artisanal food. West Iceland offers a good variety of stunning landscapes such as energetic waterfalls, rugged lava fields, salmon rivers, mountains and valleys and we have picked some less known natural jewels along our trail for this tour.
 
To increase our appetite the tour includes a short hike, where we visit natural attractions such as waterfalls, ravines and lava fields. Waterfalls in Iceland are perhaps the country's most recognizable features. The famous waterfalls you can find in most available tours, by us you visit the less known ones, yet impressive and definitely off the beaten track.


We stop for lunch near Deildartunguhver, Europe's most powerful hot spring, providing 180 l/sec of 100°C hot water. The lunch is included and consists of a combination of local delicacies.
In our farm visit we get a chance to meet the farmers, hear their story and taste their honest food produce where old traditions meet modern innovation. Our farmers are good storytellers who are proud of their heritage. In addition we will taste produces from various farmers in the area. The tours vary from day to day and so does the food, but among the tasty food from West Iceland you may find excellent lamb meat, goat and cow cheese, traditional skyr, vegetables and strawberries from geothermally heated greenhouses – just to name a few. A combination of scenic nature and culinary experience, Taste of Nature is a treat for all the senses.
