BITE BY NIGHT
SPICE UP YOUR DAY AND SPLASH AWAY
PICTURESQUE VALLEYS AND SHORES WITH LOCAL TREATS
Slip away at the end of the day for an experience of nature and local food. Bite by Night is an evening tour that includes beautiful landscape, a farm visit with dinner and a dip into a warm nature pool. It will leave you simultaneously invigorated and relaxed, refreshing body and soul. Not so far from Reykjavik city limits are valleys and shores worth visiting and treats worth tasting.
Driving out of Reykjavík we soon leave the main road to enter Kjós area by the back door. The area name, Kjós, means "in the shelter of mountains" and this shelter has become a favourite spot of locals taking time out. On our way we stop by a horticulture farmer and pioneer in local Farmers Market, where we witness the surprisingly bountiful harvest of crops in Iceland. While crisscrossing towards the coastline of Hvalfjörður we stretch our legs to better enjoy nature and along the way we enjoy bites of assorted artisan local food.
Sheep are aplenty in Iceland, by far outnumbering the local inhabitants. The first settlers of Iceland brought their most beloved sheep with them and through the ages men and sheep have shared a destiny. In Hvalfjörður we visit a sheep farm that has been in the same family for generations. We hear about the life on a farm and enjoy an evening meal of local food from the farm. Before the sun goes down we soak in the warm water of a primitive but beautiful nature pool with a stunning view towards Hvalfjörður bay. So don't forget your bathing suits.
