If you’re looking for something different to do in Iceland and would like to go off the beaten track, we really recommend this mythical walk. Snædís was our host and she really brought the stories to life and made the tour fun. This is not only a great way to hear some stories past down for many generations, but an interesting look into the Icelandic way of thinking and how the stories affect current day practices. After all, Icelanders are famous for their story telling ever since the Viking times.
Very interesting myths and beliefs of the Icelandic culture. We had a very small group made by a lovely American family of four and my fiancé and I: this made it very personal as we were interacting with our guide Stefan a lot, it wasn’t only a lesson to listen to. We had a lovely walk around parts of the city that you may not see otherwise and listened to stories that you won’t find anywhere else. Just cover yourself with warm clothes so you won’t freeze like I did
This was so much fun and extremely entertaining! You could tell our guide knew his Icelandic folklore and history and really enjoyed sharing it. I would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Reykjavik for the first time.
My friends were off on a driving tour and I fancied doing something on foot. This was a great way to hear about the traditions of Iceland and see more of Reykjavik. Stephan was very entertaining and certainly knew her stuff!
You will never hear those stories anywhere else. Very entertaining for adults and kids alike. It was creepy and funny at the same time. Our guide was great.
