Our philosophy is simple - to get out of the cities and into the countryside where you can discover the charm and beauty of the Nordic regions such as Iceland and Greenland. Walking with a small, like minded group is the best way to explore them. It is important to have time to "smell the roses", not to rush through but to soak up the atmosphere. We are great believers that the journey is what matters, not the destination! All our holidays in Iceland and Greenland are guided - we are not there to overload you with facts and figures but discreetly share with you the wonderful places we have discovered during our "journey".

About gourmet food and wine in Iceland

Iceland may not be the first country that comes to mind when thinking about gourmet food and fine wine, but the country has developed a unique culinary identity in recent years. With its volcanic landscape and harsh climate, Iceland's cuisine is centered around fresh, locally sourced ingredients that have been sustainably harvested or raised. Examples of Icelandic gourmet food include dishes like lamb stew made with local herbs and vegetables, and langoustine, a type of small lobster that is popular in Iceland. The country's dairy products, such as skyr (a type of thick yogurt) and artisanal cheeses, are also highly regarded. And for those looking for something more adventurous, Iceland's traditional fermented shark (hakarl) is a delicacy that is not for the faint of heart. In terms of fine wine, Iceland's wine culture is still in its infancy, with the country's cold climate not being conducive to grape cultivation. However, Icelandic beer, made with locally sourced ingredients like wild berries and Arctic thyme, has gained popularity in recent years and is worth trying for beer enthusiasts. Overall, Iceland's gourmet food scene is centered around locally sourced ingredients and traditional techniques, making for a unique culinary experience. While the country's wine culture is still developing, its beer culture is a testament to Iceland's ability to adapt and innovate in the face of challenging conditions.
