Farm-to-table Cooking
On our way back to Reykjavik, we swing by Íslenski Bærinn Turf House for traditional Icelandic delicacies like pancakes with whipped cream and rhubarb jelly, flatbread, and perhaps a sip of meadowsweet honey and mead. The Turf House is one of Iceland’s best-preserved turf farms, the style of building that from the time of settlement kept Icelanders alive in the harsh Arctic climate.

I am so glad I didn't read any reviews prior to booking! It seems there may be a little issue with their airport transfer service but read this review if you are planning any day trips with them! We chose this tour company because they had a pick up/drop off service to hotels on the outskirts of the city centre, which was perfect for us. We were given a pick up time and a small minibus took us to their main depot to catch a larger bus to start our trips. The first trip we took was the South Iceland And Black Sand Beaches. This was a full day trip but our 2 children (5 and 3) managed this easily as the stops were set out so well over the day. I will not spoil the experience and say everything you will see but it is well worth it! The second trip we took was the Golden Circle And Secret Lagoon. Please pay the extra to go to the Secret Lagoon as it is a very relaxing end to the day (there is an allocated 2 hours at the Secret Lagoon which is a perfect amount of time)! Their transport services are so slick....buses always waiting to transport you and people who had seperate aspects of their day booked had transport ready and waiting for them. The tour guides we had were AMAZING....they were hilarious and informative and they made our children feel so special and included. We spent this time in Iceland for our 10th wedding anniversary and these tours were a brilliant way to see some incredible things! Children under a certain age are free and I think the cost of the adults was extremely reasonable!
