A Homegrown Harvest

Savor a feast of flavours at Friðheimar.



The thermal tomato greenhouses at Friðheimar offer a unique experience for any foodie.

A glowing beacon amidst the dark winter landscape, Friðheimar harnesses the power of nature, producing delicious crops of tomatoes all the year around.


It’s a family business through and through. The husband and wife team Knútur and Helena use green energy, pure water and organic pest controls to produce fresh, flavoursome tomatoes.

Take a tour around the greenhouses and see the bees busy at work. Relax in the Mediterranean-like warmth and enjoy a sensational homegrown lunch in the family run restaurant. Sit back and soak up the heady aromas of the tomato plants. Enjoy a cheeky shot of schnapps served in a fresh tomato or sample one of the tomato based cocktails such as a Happy Mary: a winning formula of green tomato juice, Hendricks Gin and bitter lemon.

For a light lunch indulge in the mouth-watering Friðheimar Tomato Soup served with sour cream, home baked bread, cucumber salsa all presented with your very own basil plant – scissors on the side. The restaurant also serves delicious pastas, pies and ice-creams all with a tomato edge twist.


All in all, the Friðheimar experience is a warming retreat, the perfect pick-me-up for those travelling in the winter moths where daylight is all too short and sweet.
