Many often talk about the benefits of swimming in the Icelandic ocean, as it is one of our oldest traditions.
People do it all year round, and if you want to “Live Icelandic”, a combination of healthy living, swimming and seafood will do the trick, even though hearty Viking genes sure wouldn’t hurt your chances.
Chef Hafliði Halldórsson addresses the importance of healthy eating after a breezy ocean swim. As demonstrated below, Hafliði preps a true meal of champions, seafood soup to be exact, consiting of Shellfish stock, Salmon, Wolf fish and monkfish.
What a man!
