What to expect

Visit the Elves and trolls of Iceland on this entertaining walk through the oldest part of Reykjavik. If you want to experience an exciting and different side of Iceland join in and visit an elf stone in the Reykjavik city center and walk through two of the oldest cemeteries in Reykjavik for a truly haunted walk.

They will tell you about famous Ghosts like the Deacon of Dark River, the unique Icelandic monsters, the 13 Santas or the Icelandic Yule lads/ Jólasveinar, 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 (how to wake the undead).

During the long winter nights in Iceland, storytelling has been the primary entertainment and around 1 in 10 Icelanders write a book in their life, so it's obvious... they love to tell stories and you sure won't be disappointed by joining the walk and hearing a couple.
