Gluten-free Iceland  


general information

< Europe
The gluten-free situation in Iceland isn't nearly as good as in the other nordic countries, but in Reykjavik it's still quite decent - if you know where to go. Anyway, making yourself understood shouldn't be a problem: nearly every Icelander is fluent in English.
I personally have been traveling as far as to the remote Westfjords, but I'd stuffed the car with food and only found rice cakes and plain potato chips at some places.

Iceland is not a member of the European Union. It works mostly similar to EU countries, but I'm not sure if the new EU labelling law is also enforced in Iceland (and that's even though I've been living here for quite a while). I'm currently trying to find out more, but it's difficult to get any realiable information.
