What people are saying about Western Region, Iceland

Es war wirklich toll und auf jeden Fall das Geld wert. Man bekommt viele Infos über die geothermale Aktivität rund um den See. Zwar sieht man nicht den Herstellungsprozess des Teiges dafür, aber das Eingraben und Herausheben. Nach der Arbeit gibt es eine unbegrenzte Verkostung des Brotes mit isländischer Butter und geräuchertem Fisch. Danach wird man eingeladen auch mal etwas anderes in den Hot Pots zu kochen. Wir haben uns Eier besorgt und in 10 Minuten waren sie auch schon hartgekocht.

My son and I wanted to experience this Icelandic tradition and the guide was very informative. We found it very interesting and it’s pretty cool seeing the water basically boiling in the sand! And then there’s the bread - it tasted SO good! Highly recommend this experience.
