Learn the story of Iceland from a different perspective on a fun walking tour that swaps historical facts for entertaining tales about elves, trolls and ghosts. Delve into the dark tale of Iceland's only known serial killer in a land where it's easy to get lost in the lava fields. Visit 2 of the oldest graveyards and the magical Tjörnin Pond. You will experience the storytelling traditions of Iceland, when people gather to narrate the sort of myths that influenced J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit.
