    CUISINE

    All of our meals will align with the cuisine of the local culture.

    As an island nation, nothing has been more vital to this people’s survival than fishing. It not only put food on the table but exports also helped transform the country from one of the poorest in Europe at the beginning of the 19th Century to one of the richest today.
    Fishing, therefore, is an intricate part of Icelandic culture and heritage; pictures of fish decorate Icelandic coins, and wars have been fought over fishing rights, showing how serious this nation takes its fish and the lengths it will go in order to protect its most valuable product.

    However, If you have dietary restrictions please notify us ahead of time. 


    FLIGHT - HOW TO GET THERE

    You’ll be flying into Keflavik Airport which is about 45 minutes south of Reykjavik.

    Most flights arrive in the morning and so we will begin our journey with you then. Don’t worry, everyone will have pretty much taken the same overnight flight and need a day to catch up on sleep!

    TBD: Help protect whales in Iceland

    One of the foundational principles of WE ARE’s mission is the desire to give back to the destinations visited; redefining how we answer the call to travel.  By participating you are helping inform fellow visitors about the importance of not eating whale meat, therefore saving minke whales in Icelandic waters. Participants like you are crucial in encouraging responsible tourist behaviour. Over 500 volunteers from around the world have participated in this campaign since 2011, and the demand for whale meat has never been lower as a consequence. This year, Meet Us Don’t Eat Us is offering an exclusive Airbnb experience to make this campaign activity and whale conservation education accessible and fun for all! Come join us in making a difference.
