Caraway harvesting

23.08.2022 X

The Caraway Seeds on Viðey Island are ripe for picking, and you are invited for a special harvesting trip on Saturday, August 27 at 12:15.


The ferry leaves from Skarfabakki at 12:15. Once we are on shore, we will collect the caraway while being given information about its uses and where it thrives by Björk Bjarnadóttir, who is an environmentalist and ethnologist.

For this event bring a cloth bag and a small knife or pair of scissors.

All children should be accompanied by parents or guardians. Those with a Reykjavík Culture Pass receive a 10% discount on ferry tickets, and holders of the Reykjavík City Card travel for free.
