This morning, explore Reykjavík accompanied by local
experts. Take in the sights and steel your tastebuds for
some traditional Icelandic food. We will probably not
choose to eat dried fish and fermented shark on a daily
basis, but nevertheless, this is an unusual experience
we will surely tell stories about. Our tour takes in the
new Harpa Concert house and the Hallgrímskirkja.
This afternoon, we explore a rarely seen side of
Reyjkavík. We travel to a stunningly rural private island
and meet the owner, who lives a sustainable lifestyle
to envy. All electricity is generated by a windmill.
He grows his own herbs and vegetables, and eats
mainly what he can catch, in this case, wild salmon.
We check the nets and help him pull in the catch,
some of which he immediately turns into sashimi,
possibly the freshest we will ever taste. In the evening,
a bonfire is lit and the grill prepared for a delectable
three-course meal made from the fish we caught earlier
and his island-grown produce. We sit companionably
around the fire, sharing stories till late.
