Eat Vegan in Akureyri
The only vegan restaurant outside Reykjavik is Silva, in Hrafnagil
The beautiful valley that extends from Akureyri into the countryside is watered by clear mountain streams and so unpolluted, the rich farming land is ideal for growing organic vegetables.
Just outside Hrafnagil, in the old school house on the hill, a new vegan and raw food restaurant has opened. All the food is made fresh there from vegetables grown mostly in the valley. Besides full meals, they make delicious
smoothies and snacks—cakes, cookies and gluten-free bread, all without wheat, sugar, dairy or yeast.
This is just what the health-conscious family is looking for: living food at a reasonable price. So if you’re travelling around Iceland, Silva is just 12 km from Akureyri. There is easy access for disabled guests and a children’s play area, too.
They make take-away meals and can have them ready for you if you give them a call before leaving town—even out of normal opening hours. Although, if you are there at lunch or dinner time, it makes sense to relax and let the spectacular tranquil views of the valley and fjord bring peace to your spirit.
Kristín also runs a series of short courses, teaching how to create raw food meals yourself.Silva
