Icelandic Cuisine

The spa has a few dining options for guests. A cafe serves soups, salads, and snacks. For a gourmet option, Lava restaurant — built into a wall of lava rock — offers dishes such as reindeer burgers, arctic char, lamb, and even vegan options.

Icelandic fun fact #8: A visit to Iceland isn't complete without trying three foods. First, skyr is a tasty yogurt-like dairy product. Kleinur are delicious Nordic cousins of the doughnut. And then there's Hákarl, or fermented shark, which has a strong ammonia odor; I suspect Icelanders enjoy foisting it on unsuspecting tourists.
