Icelanders enjoy the luxury of drinking pure, crystal clear tap water
A few years ago, a laboratory in New York resolved to test the purity of the Icelandic water. When the sample was analysed, no impurities were detected. The scientists were reduced to testing their own equipment to check for any malfunction. This story is now firmly part of Icelandic folklore, whether true or not. There is no doubt, however, that Icelandic drinking water is among the purest in the world. And it doesn't have to come in fancy bottles with designer labels. In Iceland, you drink it straight from the tap.
