Icelandic berriesBerry-picking in the countryside is a popular past-time amongst Icelanders in late summer. Many of our farmers have good berry-picking grounds and we hear that there is outlook for a very good berry harvest this year (the season being August-mid-September).
 
Why not join the locals in picking some delicious wild blueberries or crowberries during a late-summer holiday with Hey Iceland?
 
Alternatively, try this easy recipe for a popular cake in Iceland – blueberry skyr cake – at home. There is something simply irresistable about the combination of blueberries and the traditional Icelandic dairy product, skyr (similar to strained yogurt) – enjoy!
