Easter in Iceland does not follow a strict tradition. Many people celebrate by taking a short vacation within the country to take advantage of the time off. A popular activity during the Easter weekend is skiing. Ísafjörður, a town in Iceland, hosts a “ski week” during this time, along with a music festival known as “I Never Went South.”
Another popular way to celebrate the holiday is to eat an Easter egg. The typical Easter egg is chocolate and filled with Icelandic candy on the inside. Families also enjoy Easter dinner together, typically consisting of roasted lamb.
