Where can I buy Icelandic dried fish jerky (Harðfiskur) in the US or Canada? And, if I like fish jerky, what other yummy but unusual preserved foods should I try?

A friend recently brought back a package of fish jerky from Iceland. It was really tasty, and I would like to see about buying some more. The only place I could find selling it online via Google was in Iceland; I'd just as soon avoid paying international shipping and maybe import duty for something so trivial, so I was hoping someone would know of a store or internet retailer in the US or Canada that imports and sells harðfiskur.
And I would welcome suggestions for other unusual but yummy dried or preserved foods that would be fun to try. (For "unusual," read: "unlikely to be found in a large US grocery store with a decent international section.") Flavorful is good, but nothing so pungent as to be room-clearing, please. I'm open to trying anything as long as it can be ordered online or on the phone (so your grandmother's homemade sausage in Slovakia may be the most awesome food ever, but if she isn't selling it in the US, telling me about it doesn't help very much). I visit friends in Canada several times a year, so Canadian-based suggestions are most welcome.
