Icelandic Gourmet Getaway Package
Nordic food has been enjoying a newfound popularity in recent years, thanks to research by scientists at the University of Copenhagen that found traditional Scandinavian cuisine to be just as healthy as its Mediterranean counterpart. Ingredients such as fish, root vegetables, whole-grain breads, nuts and game are as healthy as they are tasty.
In 2005, the Nordic Council of Ministers created the New Nordic Food Manifesto as a way to encourage use of traditional food products in gourmet cuisine.
Several restaurants in the Nordic Countries have earned international acclaim by offering creative, delicious courses featuring the region's game, fish, and wild herbs and plants, as well as Farm produce from organic and family-owned farms.
Several Icelandic restaurants have joined this movement, the most renowned of them being the Vox Restaurant at the four-star Hilton Reykjavik Nordica.
This deluxe package gives you the perfect venue to indulge in eating -- and preparing -- Iceland's version of the New Nordic Food movement. You'll also visit the famous Golden Circle region of Southwest Iceland and indulge in a natural steambath spa.
You'll stay at the elegant Hilton Reykjavik Nordica. This hotel offers excellent amenities, including the luxurious NordicaSpa and the five star Vox Restaurant. It is also famous for its traditional high teas.
This trip is ideal for invigorating both the body and the spirit!
