Bjarnarhöfn Shark Museum

Shark is a vital part of Icelandic sea-life culture. Poisonous when fresh, it requires a fermenting procedure to be edible. Learn all about it – its biology, habits and cooking traditions at this family operated museum. Enjoy the guided tour, Q&A, lots of personal attention and lastly the pinnacle, trying your own bite size piece accompanied by Brennivín (aka ‘black death’) schnapps – for those of age. It’s not as bad as you might think, but you be the judge!
