On our last trip to Iceland, I was introduced to my new favorite snack - Hardfiskur. It is dried fish - sort of "fish jerky". Icelanders eat it smeared with SMJÖR - thick, rich butter. It is the perfect road food - we happily munched it on a day trip to Geysir and Gullfoss, washing it down with the Icelandic staple
Egils Applesin (orange soda).
The fish is hung out to dry on big racks made of wooden poles.
In the fishing village of Hafnarfjordur these racks are out on the lava fields.
Only 8 weeks, 5 days and we will be there!
