The Perfect Tomato Farm in Iceland

6 09 2016

During my stay in Reykjavik, Iceland, I signed up with a day tour to visit the so-called “Golden Circle” sites so on a somewhat drizzly Sunday morning, I headed out to the pick-up point near my apartment.

The van that picked me up along with other tourists took us to a big bus terminal where we boarded this big tour bus which was completely full.

And our first stop after leaving the city was at a tomato farm growing tomatoes all-year round in this hothouse.

Because I was not aware we were going to make this stop, I initially thought, “What?  A souvenir stop so soon?” but it was far from one of those obligatory stops where they encourage you to purchase something.  Well, they did, but what they offered was tomato soup and Bloody Mary made with fresh tomatoes.  At 10 am, I naturally went for the bloody mary.
