Product Description

The Legend of Alda the Mermaid

In the old days in the North there was a mermaid named Alda. Her eyes were green and her hair was long and wild. She would sing with such a melancholic voice for the fisherman in their boats that they lost their minds. The only one undisturbed by her haunting melodies was a young fisherman named Brandur. Hardworking and poor, Brandur never stopped fishing and lit bonfires floating in the darkness around his small boat. The light not only attracted fish, but also Alda. Every night she came a little closer to the flames. The moment Brandur's eyes fell upon the mermaid he jumped from his boat and vanished into the sea. Even today, Alda's singing may be heard on quiet nights in the area of Breidafjordur.

The Salt Making Process

Nordur Arctic Sea Salt Flakes are made using an historic, traditional technique. The geothermal method was first explored in 1753. The Arctic waters are transported into open salt pans where the water is heated and, as evaporation occurs, crisp flakes form. The unique source of heat is from natural hot springs. No additional energy is used to produce this delightful sea salt. The company, Nordur, has a vision of sustainability and everything they do revolves around this core mission.
