The video is a part of a larger campaign being conducted by Inspired By Iceland, wherein Icelanders invite tourists to their homes to enjoy everything from kayaking to home-made ice cream.
The president is inviting tourists to the presidential residence at Bessastaðir for Icelandic pancakes served with sugar and cream, while adding that his wife Dorrit Moussaieff is more health-conscious, and will be offering fresh vegetables grown in the presidential greenhouses.
