Food Trail in Eyjafjarðarsveit

In Eyjafjarðarsveit you can enjoy unique food experience with the locals. Our guests can taste and buy a variety of Icelandic food like Icelandic beef, Icelandic lamb, bell pepper, eggs, honey, bacon, potatoes, homemade ice cream, and milk. Restaurants and coffee houses from the area pride themselves on using local ingredients. Companies in tourism wanted to preserve and promote food production and culture. At the same time create more opportunities for local producers. The Picnic Basket is a good example of the food trail. In that basket, you can taste local production from seven farms in one basket. Food events, food markets, and education is also a large part of the foot trail. This is something you can't miss when visiting North Iceland. Check out for more information.
