FOOD & FARM
SCENIC VIEWS AND DELICIOUS TREATS FROM LOCAL FARMS
AROUND THE FJORD AND THROUGH THE VALLEY
Get an insight into the life on a typical Icelandic farm, taste local treats and enjoy the stunning scenery at an easy going pace. The area around Hvalfjörður, once buzzing with activity, is now an oasis of calmness, with farms tucked away between the ocean and the mountains.
As an add-on you can choose to include a 2hrs visit to Hvammsvik Natural Hot Spring - a unique bathing experience in natural hot springs right on the ridge of the Atlantic Ocean.
This tour leads us through the subtle wonders of Hvalfjörður. On one hand the ocean, on the other, mountains and hills. In between them the farms. Some of the farms in this area have been there since the settlement of Iceland. Farming has changed and the farmers have changed, but they keep cultivating the land and taking care of their animals. The farmers we visit open their doors to us, show us around and share their stories and food.
The scenery is stunning in its soft beauty. Rivers and waterfalls, hills and mountains, the coastline and small islands; there is plenty to please the eye.
You can choose to add a 2 hrs visit to Hvammsvik Natural Hot springs to your day tour (minimal age for the baths: 10 years; only one child per adult). Hvammsvík Hot Springs offers eight hot springs of various sizes and temperatures, a steam cave and outdoor relaxationa area. Here you are immersed in a perfect fusion of geothermal water flowing from a source 1.4 km (09 mile) underground with seawater straight from the Atlantic ocean. The steady stream of this unparalleled blend of water, between pools, over their edges and bacvk into the ocean, ensures optimum water quality and naturally recharging experience.
