The annual ‘Fish soup Saturday’ will be celebrated in Reykjavik tomorrow as a part of the Festival of the Sea.

Tomorrow on Laugarvegur shopping street you’ll be able to feast on some savory fish soup courtesy of shop- and restaurant owners in central Reykjavík.

According to, the food-festivities start at 1:30pm and is, of course, closely related to the Festival of the Sea which is celebrated this weekend in the city.

Talented accordionists will play music for guests and keep the atmosphere light and lively. Keep in mind that citizens of Reykjavik will also be voting in the District Council elections so getting information about the Icelandic political landscape over a bowl of fish soup could be a cultural experience on its own.
