Gluten Free Iceland And Stockholm

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all!

Im going to Iceland for the first time in April and will be staying a couple of days in Reykjavik before heading on to Sweden. Have any of you gluten-free-ers ever been to Reykjavik? Anyone know what to look for in the grocery stores as far as gluten free. I am thinking they will have a lot of stuff similar to the Scandinavian countries. But any input would be sooooo appreciated! Thank you!

Haleym, I have been on Iceland several times. You want to visit the health food stores in Reykjavik (there are several) for gluten-free Wasa crackers, breads, cookies, etc. These stores sell Dr. Schar products as well. The nice thing about Iceland is you will find the gluten free items in a gluten-free section of the health food stores. I never had a problem eating in Iceland. The food is fresh, particularly if you love fish or lamb. I took an Icelandic restaurant card that a native Icelander made for me and emailed me. I no longer have the card, but I contacted the Icelandic Celiac Society because it was there that they gave me the emaill address of someone who helped me.

If you can squeeze in the time, make an excursion by bus to the Blue Lagoon http://www.bluelagoon.com/ If you go to the Blue Lagoon (you MUST go) there is a motel/restaurant next door called The Northern Light Inn, http://www.northernlightinn.is/. Christiana runs it, and she was wonderful. Anything she cooks is fabulous, and I recommend you bath in the Blue Lagoon in the afternoon, then have them call Christiana for a free shuttle to her motel up the road. I feel so pampered when I do this.

Hope you have a great time!

I've also been to Iceland twice and will be going again at the end of this month. However, I just got diagnosed with celiac disease a month ago, so I wasn't on this diet the last 2 times I went. I'll also be going to Finland (my 2nd time) and Estonia. I'll be staying in Reykjavik mainly.
