Smokehouse at Geiteyjarströnd

The smokehouse on Geiteyjarströnd is nationally known for its unique smoked Mývatn trout. The trout is cut transversely, carefully salted dry, washed out of cold water and hung to dry. After that, it is smoked for 4-5 days with heavy smoke. The smokehouse was built by Héðinn in 1979 and the same things are still being done indoors, more than 40 years later.

You can get the trout in all the main supermarkets, Icelandair Hotel Mývatn and Eldá.
