Its exceptional location makes it a country of extremes contrasts and impressive landscapes. The cold ice of glaciers co-exists with the heat of some of the continent´s hottest volcanic springs, such as Hekla and Eldfell. Large lakes like Þórisvatn, fjords and geysers like the famous Strokkur and roaring waterfalls, complete a picture in which a peaceful and progressive population lives in harmony with the sometimes violent forces of an unspoiled nature.
Iceland’s cuisine is based mainly on fish, lamb and dairy products, with little use of herbs or spices. Typical dishes include porramatur, skyr, hákarl (cured shark), cured ram, singed sheep heads, and black pudding.
Breakfast usually consists of pancakes, cereal, fruit, and coffee, while lunch may take the form of a smorgasbord. The main meal of the day for most Icelanders is dinner, which usually involves fish or lamb as the main course. Lamb tends to be either smoke-cured (known as hangikjöt) or salt-preserved (saltkjöt).
Seafood is central to most Icelandic cooking, particularly cod and haddock but also salmon, herring, and halibut. It is often prepared in a wide variety of ways, either smoked, pickled, boiled, or dried.
