When Should You Visit Iceland?

In bilberry season!

I once asked a waitress in Reykjavik why Icelandic lamb was so superior. “It’s the berries,” she said.

Well, a lamb dinner in a nice restaurant in Reykjavik, like the Apotek …

… is going to cost CAD$65 for the main course alone, so, you know, $260 all-in for two. For this reason, there are bilberries, which are free for all who wish to marinate themselves in the rain and the wind. Highly recommended.

In winter, there are no bilberries. And no lambs. You’re on your own.
