The Westman Islands are known for their great food culture. Ever since the island was inhabited, it has had a variety of food boxes. Lots of bird life here has yielded well and Lundin is one of the best known for good food consumption of all time and is still very much connected to the islands, especially when it comes to the national highland. Egg picking is still going on despite being on a smaller scale than before. The fish in the sea has been the main food of islanders over the centuries, and many came from the mainland to work here with the fish. Today, we have restaurants that are among the best in the country and the focus is on fresh foods. The release goes so far that he also seeks the island's diverse vegetation as spices and trimmings. But what's more fun than walking in between and getting fun stories and coming and tasting something unique and tasty. This tour is a great combination of good food, stories and information for your group


The tour starts on the pier when you meet with the ferry to the island or outside the property. An Islander welcomes the group and begins to tell you a fun story about the islands.
From there, we walk up to the Restaurant Slippinn and welcome the group with standing small dishes along with a presentation of the restaurant's history. The famous steeple goes out and shows how the islanders are used to swinging in the cliffs.
After the jump, walk into Sagnheima which has the history of the Westman Islands, life, as it were, the eruption story along with many other wonderful things from the ancient times to the present.
On the way from Sagnheimar, a few stories are added and end in a good restaurant. So there are two of the best restaurants on the island.
The choice is to end the tour at the Brothers Brewery or add more restaurants to the tour. Otherwise, there will be time to wander around downtown.
