Course Description

Iceland and Scotland are two of the world’s smallest and feistiest nations. With a Viking heritage, Iceland has thrived in a harsh, isolated environment, cloaked in darkness much of the winter and threatened by volcanic activity. Lately, it has become one of the globe’s hottest tourist destinations for its incredible scenery and its contemporary architecture. Scotland, the country closed off from the rest of the world by Roman emperor Hadrian for being too unruly, continues to be the crusty brother of the British Isles. The land of golf, whisky and kilts, Scotland is a rugged country filled with compelling history and gorgeous scenery.

We will tour both countries, using Reykjavik and Edinburgh as our hubs, while exploring local culture and enjoying tasty delicacies. Both countries have well-deserved reputations for poor food, but lately, young chefs have been creating fine food that has taken the world by surprise. Join John Gilchrist, Calgary’s foremost food writer (he also claims both Scottish and Scandinavian ancestry) on this fascinating tour.
