Vegans traveling in Iceland – Don´t panic!

It seems that more and more people around the world are choosing a vegan lifestyle.
Iceland is no exception in that department so if you are a vegan traveler in Iceland, you don´t have to worry!
There is plenty to choose from!
Here is a list of a few restaurants that offer good vegan choices so no one has to go hungry;

Gló
Gló is a very popular restaurant in Iceland and is the creation of the entrepreneur, Solla. Due to her health, she had to change lifestyle and Iceland benefitted greatly by it 😊
The restaurant also offers chicken for those who can´t be without meat.
Kryddlegin hjörtu
It is possible to get meat, vegetarian and vegan choices at “Seasoned hearts”. They use first class fresh and local food production and local farmers. Their soup and salad bar are their specialty.
Aalto bistro
If you want to try a true Nordic style restaurant, Aalto Bistro is the one for you.
You will get new ingredients as the seasons change because the TV chef, Sveinn Kjartansson, will only work with the freshest food he can get each time.
Kaffi Garðurinn
A small, quiet café in the city center that offers a variety of vegan courses with a changing menu from week to week.
All the staff are easy going and calm as they all practice meditation to create a calm environment.
At the café you are able to get all sorts of cakes and danish and most of it is vegan 😊
Joylato
We saved the best for last!
This ice crème shop freezes the ice creme right in front of your eyes using liquid nitrogen!
Costumers are able to choose between a cow’s milk or coconut milk. It is even possible to choose between a few different flavors and sweeteners

More and more gas stations offer vegan options to grab on the go. But be careful: Vega and Vegan is not the same! Vega means “on the road”.
