You've probably heard about some of the weird and wacky delicacies that Icelanders love to see travellers eat, from hakarl (fermented shark) to svid (boiled sheep's head) and even surir hrutspungar (sour ram's testicles!). But Icelandic food delivers so much more than shock value. Flanked by the North Atlantic Ocean and populated by almost twice the amount of sheep as humans, Iceland understandably boasts a cuisine dominated by seafood and local lamb. The country's specialities are all about keeping you warm, using what's local, and packing a traditional punch.
