There’s a lot to learn in Iceland. Whether you’re a true-blue Icelander or a group of lucky students on a trip to Iceland, there’s one place that stands out from the crowd of typical tourist spots and natural wonders. That’s The Fish Factory.
While simple in name, the nature of The Fish Factory is not simple, and it’s certainly not to be overlooked. Fish is a staple in the Icelandic diet, but that fish has to come from somewhere. Chances are, if the fish you’ve eaten is fresh and tasty, it came from The Fish Factory. The Fish Factory has the massive task of processing the fresh catches of local fisherman. They take in the catch of the previous night, process it with their high-tech machinery, and then package it up so it’s ready for distribution to restaurants and markets all around.
The Fish Factory offers group tours, too! Students have a lot to gain from this tour. In it they’ll see first-hand where their food comes from, how it gets from ocean to table, and they’ll get an idea of the inner workings of the society that they live in or are visiting. It’s an educational tour that can be interesting and fun, as well! Plus, it ends with a delicious meal of fish and chips in the restaurant upstairs from the factory floor. What’s better than a little learning that ends with some tasty food?!
Currently, The Fish Factory tours and dines groups only. So, if you have a group of students and you want to give them a great experience that they won’t soon forget, consider booking a private tour with The Fish Factory and get an insider look at the world of Iceland’s fresh fish!.
