One of the most pleasant experiences of any holiday abroad is trying out the local cuisine and traditional delicacies. This is no exception for visitors to Iceland.

Icelandic fine dining restaurants have changed dramatically in the past few years, with many chefs incorporating fresh new ingredients into popular traditional Icelandic dishes. The result has been an explosion of culinary inventiveness and worldwide recognition for several Icelandic restaurants.

If you’re looking for a more traditional Icelandic meal, then don’t worry. While menus have grown to reflect the influence of ingredients from around the world, much pride is taken in offering travellers a taste of a real Viking feast. Seafood dishes are fresh and hearty, and Iceland’s free-range lamb is some of the finest you will ever have the pleasure of tasting.

Conferences In Iceland

Increasingly, international companies are choosing to hold meetings and conferences in Iceland. The facilities are top class, and the venues are equipped with the newest technology and staffed by professionals who are skilled in making your event a success. As such, Iceland enjoys an excellent reputation with the global business community.

The Icelandic people are sophisticated and well-travelled, and English is spoken by nearly everyone. Many also speak French, German, Spanish, and one or more of the Scandinavian languages. Iceland’s location means that it is influenced by both North America and Europe, giving it a cosmopolitan edge, despite a population of just over 300,000. This makes holding an event in Iceland a pleasure.

Icelandic business

It is also extremely easy for international firms to access Icelandic companies and institutions that are in similar fields, and many Icelandic businesses welcome the opportunity to exchange ideas and share knowledge.

Icelandic experts provide consultancy services to governments and organisations throughout the world in industries such as fisheries and geothermal energy. Iceland has also been party to an international project to test the use of hydrogen as new source of energy. Other key industries in Iceland include genetic research, pharmaceuticals, and tourism.
