Icelandic Mythical Walk


    Tour operator: Your Friend in Reykjavík     1h 30m     Travel method: Walking     Region: Capital Region

Iceland is sometimes called the land of the Sagas and on this walk, you get the chance to hear many interesting sagas involving the hidden people and creatures of Iceland

We will tell you all about the Icelandic Elves, Trolls, Ghosts like the Deacon of the dark river, the unique mostly aquatic monsters, the 13 Santa's (it's not enough to have just one Santa Claus in Iceland after all ;))

their mother the child eating troll called Grýla and finally the only known serial killer of Iceland in a land where it's easy to get lost in the lava fields...

You will also get an introduction into Icelandic magic and the runes of old

In the long winter nights in Iceland storytelling has been the primary entertainment for people so there are reasons why Icelanders love books and have the highest literacy rate in the world.

1 in 10 Icelanders writes a book in his lifetime so we obviously love to tell stories and you sure won't be disappointed by joining our walk and hearing a couple

J.R.R. Tolkien was heavily influenced by Norse mythology and the Icelandic Sagas when he wrote The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit so we will explain some of the fun similarities between our worlds

It's perfect for those who want a little adventure in their life because the story's come alive on our walk. 

For families, please keep in mind that some of the stories can be scary to little children so it's also possible to contact us regarding

a private walk where we can dial the scariness down a notch ;).   yfir@yourfriendinreykjavik.com
