Iceland with Alexander Armstrong

Season 1
Iceland's unique isolated position has created an equally individual culture. Actor and presenter Alexander Armstrong sets out on the adventure of a lifetime in the Land of Ice and Fire. He soon finds that there's more to Iceland than just Vikings and violently erupting volcanoes. Traversing the full breadth of the country he discovers a land of geysers, very expensive beer and even rotten shark.

    Iceland, and its capital Reykjavik is filled with wonders of both a natural, and a slightly more bizarre persuasion.

He then finds out about the Icelandic belief in elves, meets an Icelandic rock band and then takes a trip to the legendary Penis Museum.

    October 12, 2021
    Northern Iceland and the port of Husavik is beloved of whale watchers and Will Ferrell fans (as it's the locale of his film Eurovision: The Story of Fire Saga). In this laid-back town, Alexander Armstrong meets, and eats, a huge Greenland shark, considered one of the world's most disgusting food dishes. He also tries to knit, plays golf at midnight, and learns to ride an Icelandic horse.
