Everyone's encouraged to hop on the ferry to Viðey and spend a cosy afternoon together for this wonderful seasonal activity. It would be great to see some masters of the craft there too, who can tell us all about their own leaf-bread-making experience. You never know, the smell of that delicious leaf bread cooking might just tempt a few of those Icelandic Christmas Lads over for a visit!

The leaf bread costs 2,000 ISK for 10 pieces.

Viðey House has a limited supply of leaf-bread irons and paring knives, therefore guests are asked to bring their own utensils if possible.

A selection of tasty meals and refreshments are available to purchase at Viðey Restaurant.

To register for this event please contact staff at videyjarstofa@videyjarstofa.is
