Volcano Bread

Visit the Laugarvatn Fontana Spa in the village of Laugarvatn, Iceland, where guests can try the famous “Rye Bread Experience,” courtesy of the amazing geothermic sands that can bake bread in bubbling underground “ovens.”

Says traveler and video producer Alison Grasso, “in my research of ‘cool Iceland foods’ (very possibly my actual Google search) I came upon the Rye Bread Experience offered at Laugarvatn Fontana Spa, just about an hour outside of Reykjavik. So my cousin and I went, and we filmed, and we ate dense, sweet, molasses-y bread that Viktor took straight out of the bubbling sand, topped with an alarmingly thick cut of Icelandic butter that looked like cheese, but wasn’t. We learned about the geothermal activity surrounding Laugarvatn, which translates to ‘hot spring lake,’ and how locals from nearby share the six geothermal ‘ovens’ for personal cooking, like slow-cooked lamb.”
