Icelandic Mythical Walk

MEET THE ELVES, TROLLS & GHOSTS OF ICELAND
Iceland is sometimes called the land of the Sagas and on this mythical 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 Elves and Trolls of Iceland, Ghosts like the Deacon of the dark river, the unique mostly aquatic monsters and the 13 Santa’s (it’s not enough to have just one Santa Claus in Iceland after all ;)).

We start off in the heart of Old Town Reykjavik talking about Icelandic Vikings and Magic. We walk a few steps to the oldest graveyard in Reykjavik where we learn how to raise a zombie/ghost. From there we walk up to an Elfstone and visit the Elves of Iceland. Next, it's a short walk to the Catholic Cathedral and once there it's stories of the Trolls of Iceland and their mischief. On we walk to the second oldest, spooky and beautiful graveyard Hólavallakirkjugarður where the ghosts of Iceland come and join the tour. We finish walking alongside Reykjavik Pond and end up in front of the Parliament building of Iceland. It's a very short walk from where we end, to where we started our adventure into the myth of Iceland.
Other things to note
Just make sure to use layers of clothes as it can get a little chilly in Iceland and we walk in any weather.

I found his storytelling was quite good, and have history about Iceland you might not find anywhere else. A really nice time, despite the weather.

This was a more in depth more about folklore in Iceland. If you go on the city walk tour some things are similar. Definitely learned a lot and enjoy Bardí’s acting skills to make everyone understand each story.

This was a wonderful tour for our family! The kids laughed and had a super fun time! The walk was easy and beautiful! Extra little information to fit our group. We really loved it and recommend this tour!

My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed Stefán's stories and a different view of Reykjavik. Highly recommended if you want a local's inside view and some great storytelling. Wish it could have been longer.
