3. Geyser Bread!

Iceland’s unique rúgbrauð is a dark rye bread cooked by placing the dough into covered pots and burying them near geothermal springs. The steam from the springs does the baking and the result is a dense, almost cake-like loaf of bread that tastes a bit like caramel. We know most of us don’t have a geothermal spring handy but one of our Icelandic Adventure Guides shared a hack to make this delicious doughy goodness at home. Download a printable version of the recipe here.

Geyser bread (Rúgbrauð)


  • 1 Cup rye flour
  • 1/3 Cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • ½ Tsp baking soda
  • 1 ¼ Cups of buttermilk
  • 5 Tbsp golden syrup 
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F, and line and grease a 1 Lb loaf pan
  2. Mix all the ingredients with a spoon until you reach a similar consistency to oatmeal
  3. Pour mix into a loaf pan and cover loosely with foil (the dough will rise so give the foil a dome shape)
  4. Place in the oven and lower the heat to 225 degrees F
  5. Bake for 7 hours
  6. Remove from the oven and cool
4. Icelandic Legends!

Iceland has a rich history of folklore and legends. Throughout our itinerary, Adventure Guides regale adventurers with entertaining tales of trolls, elves and hidden people that inhabit the majestic and mysterious landscapes of this Nordic island. Our friends from Disney Family shared instructions to create a delicious treat inspired by the magical stone trolls from FrozenFun fact: Iceland influenced the visual design and the story of Frozen 2.

About Mike and Jamie Sylvester

We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 15 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
