After lunch we go for a short walk in Ísafjörður and the to the eco-friendly fishing village Suðureyri to enjoy a Food Trail.
Suðureyri is a small and environmentally friendly village where everything evolves around fish. We offer you a chance to see how the locals are living at the edge of the Arctic Circle, and learn about how we process first class fish products in this thriving community.
Get a fresh taste of the finest fish that Iceland has to offer, and see how Iceland's most exported fish can be on your dinner plate at home just 36 hours after being caught from the ice cold Atlantic ocean. After a guided tour and a good taste of the local cuisine you are welcome to explore the village and meet the locals. Nature lovers will be pleased with the village opportunities and breath-taking scenery.
