Christmas Walking Tour in Hafnarfjordur

Immerse yourself in Icelandic Christmas culture with this wonderful walking tour. This excursion should not be missed by any who want to get into the festive spirit in a winter wonderland. This tour begins when you meet your guide at the town hall of Hafnarfjörður, Iceland’s third largest population centre. This town is deeply entwined with Iceland’s history, folklore and customs, making it the perfect place to get to know how this nation celebrates Christmas time. Your guide will then take you on an immersive walk through the town. You’ll stop to meet locals at different points, in their decorated homes and businesses, to be given some wonderful Advent goodies and to hear how they celebrate. Of course, on this tour, you’ll get to see all of Hafnarfjörður’s highlights, such as its harbour, the Viking Village, its rows of old houses decked in lights, and the ‘elf gardens’. These gardens are said to contain Hidden People, an elven race who live in a parallel world, renowned for their mysterious and often vengeful behaviour. This town has many spots where it is said that these elves reside, and your guide will tell you all about their influence on Icelandic culture. This is not the only side of the folklore you’ll become well-acquainted with, however; Iceland’s ideas of ‘Santa’ are far from our own. Rather than one jolly man, Iceland has thirteen trolls they associate with this time; on each day of Christmas, one descends the mountains to wreck havoc or play pranks on the locals. Called the Yule Lads, they are often today represented as mischievous, wearing the classic red and white outfit associated with Santa, although historically they were malicious and wore dirty rags. The Yule Lads have an evil ogress for a mother, Gryla, who feasts on children, and she has an enormous pet nicknamed the Christmas Cat, who does the same but only to kids who don’t get clothes on the 25th; the reason this became part of the folklore was to ensure that everyone finished their weaving, sewing and knitting before the winter was in full swing. Towards the end of the tour, you will head to the decorated house of a local, where you can get some refreshments and the chance to ask any more questions you have. Don’t miss this chance to feel the festive spirit on a walking tour in Hafnarfjörður. Check availability by choosing a date.

New Years Eve | Three Bonfires and Firework Spectacular

Enjoy one of the most spectacular firework shows on earth in a beautiful location this New Years Eve. This opportunity should not be missed by those who want to witness an unreal display to say goodbye to the last year and to usher in the new. At the beginning of this tour, you’ll be picked up in a minibus with a small group, and will be driven to three different bonfires in Reykjavík. At each, you can expect hundreds of Icelanders celebrating, playing music and singing songs. Many will be in traditional regalia, and many more setting off some early fireworks, giving a hint of what is to come. As you enjoy the festivities at each, your friendly, local guide will tell you about the Christmas and New Year customs, such as the food that is eaten and the associated folklore. New Years Eve, for example, is said to be the day that the Hidden People, or Icelandic Elves, move house, and are most often seen on Iceland’s lonely roads. When it comes close to midnight, your guide will take you to a very special viewing location in the city where you will have a perfect view of the whole skyline. When the clock strikes twelve, prepare for the show of your life. In the buildup to New Year, Icelanders all over the country, from all backgrounds, stock up on fireworks, buying them from the rescue teams that sell them to raise funds. In Reykjavík, therefore, tens of thousands of households will have each bought dozens of fireworks. When they set them off, it is in a random display that sets the entire sky alight. You’ll toast the New Year beneath a canopy of colour, enjoy the incredible show, then be escorted back towards your accommodation (or to the bars, if your night is just beginning). Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to see one of the world’s best firework shows. Check availability by choosing a date.

Three-Course Home Cooked Christmas Dinner in Hafnarfjordur

Enjoy a traditional Icelandic Christmas dinner in the home of a local in the town of Hafnarfjörður. This experience should not be missed by those who want to learn about this nation’s Yuletide culture, nor those who want to make the very most of the happiest time of year. Christmas is a beautiful festival in Iceland, with the snow and ice creating a winter wonderland and the long nights brightened by colourful lights. What makes it even better is the traditional cuisine and the associating culture of storytelling and folklore. You’ll arrive at the house of your friendly host in the evening for a three-course dinner and a night of fascinating conversation. You’ll get to taste how, in spite of being a barren island, Icelanders managed to pull together every resource they had to make an array of unique and festive dishes. You’ll also get to hear how Christmas here differs from the rest of the world. Take, for example, the friendly Santa Claus known around much of the west. Icelanders never celebrated him; instead, they feared the thirteen Yule Lads, who would descend from the mountains one by one on the days leading up to the 24th. These Yule Lads were filthy, mischievous trolls, each with a unique way of inspiring fear. Some, such as Spoon Licker, were simply disgusting, while others, such as Window Peeper, were rather terrifying. Their mother, Gryla, was worse than all of them combined, with her taste for the flesh of children. Her huge Christmas Cat had the same appetite, but only went for the young ones who got no clothes as presents. This story likely developed as a way to motivate children into finishing their sewing before the season. The fact that this delicious meal is enjoyed in Hafnarfjörður will help add to the intrigue of Iceland’s folklore. Often called ‘the Town of Elves’, this settlement has many sites said to conceal the country’s Hidden People, has long held onto its belief in Iceland’s mystery, and is surrounded in lava fields, the caves of which are said to have once held trolls. After enjoying three sensational courses, you’ll get to open and take home a surprise present under the Christmas tree, and enjoy some Icelandic festive music. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to enjoy a traditional Christmas meal in Iceland with a local. Check availability by choosing a date.

Hafnafjörður is a place steeped in art, history, culture and folklore, and boasts beautiful surrounding nature with spectacular sea views and great expanses of lava. The settlement is often nicknamed the town of elves or vikings, or else the town on the lava, and on this tour, you will learn why. The excursion begins when you meet your friendly local guide at the town hall. From here, you will set off on a three and a half hour, gentle walk around Hafnrafjörður, stopping at many sites. Your guide knows all the best artists in the town, and will introduce you to a variety of painters, sculptors, designers and craftsmen. They will show you around their studios and galleries, discussing how they work and the influence this country’s nature and culture has on their pieces. There are also many public works of art on display to be admired. Though this tour will focus largely on meeting these creative people and learning about their work, no tour of Hafnarfjörður would be complete without learning about its history as an early Viking settlement; many of the buildings here are designed to resemble their architectural style. You’ll also learn about the folklore deeply entwined in this town. Hafnarfjörður is renowned for its population of Hidden People, mysterious and often dangerous elves who live parallel to humans in a secret world. You guide will tell you many tales associated with them, and you’ll get to visit an area where they are said to still linger out of site, the Elf Gardens.

This is where Olly's little farming village, just south of the Wall, was attacked by Ygritte and her wildling skirmishers.

There is the breathtaking Háifoss—the second highest waterfall in Iceland—and the mysterious Hjálparfoss, surrounded by several rock troll formations. This is also known as the waterfall of friendship, since, in reality, these are two waterfalls that connect into one.

You'll visit three excellent bars and sample ten microbrew beers, which is ample to give you a nice warm buzz before you start dancing in Reykjavik. You don't have to be a huge beer lover to enjoy our tour as your expert guides will experiment with different styles to cater to diverse tastes. Some of the beers you will try on the tour are not to be found anywhere else in Iceland, and can only be experienced in one of the special bars you will visit, such as one made with Skyr, an Icelandic yoghurt. You will also sample Brennivín (if you are up for it), the unique Icelandic spirit that's sometimes called Black Death when it's exported, for its strong taste. Your expert guide will introduce you to the interesting and funny history of beer and alcohol Iceland, in particular, the prohibition of beer that started in 1915 and was only lifted in 1989. They will also tell you all about the microbrewery revolution that started in 2006 in Iceland, how the country now has over 30 microbreweries operating. Your group's meetup place is by Ingólfstorg Square downtown, and it's a very short walk to your first bar, but please keep in mind you are in Iceland so dress in layers. In your first bar, you'll start with a glass of the most seasonal beer available before you head to the second to sample five different flavours based on what's available at that moment; no beer tour is the same. Finally, you'll head out to our final bar where you get the final three to four samples, depending on if you want to try the Brennivín or not. Don't miss this exciting introduction to Icelandic nightlife. Check availability by choosing a date.

Cheers to Reykjavik! | Locally Hosted Beer and Food Tour

Eat and drink with the locals, on this relaxing and informative evening. Try six different Icelandic beers, dine on the national cuisine, and chat with locals about the history, culture, and current affairs of their great country. This tour should not be missed by foodies or anyone who wants an interesting start to their night out partying in Reykjavík. You will meet your host and your new drinking buddies at the bar, 'Bryggjan Brugghús', which is located in one of the most picturesque parts of the city, at the Old Harbour. This tour is informal and fun, meaning there is nothing on the host's agenda, so feel free to ask whatever questions about Iceland that you have. They can talk about the history and culture, give honest advice about travelling, and provide tips for a great holiday, or else discuss something completely unrelated if you'd rather. You will be served six different beers, and each one will be paired with a locally sourced Icelandic meal, tapas style. You will get to try the two most traditional food sources of the nation: fish and lamb. The fish is freshly caught that day, and the absolute speciality of the country; Icelanders are experts at flavouring it. The lamb, however, flavours itself; the free-roaming sheep of Iceland graze on Icelandic thyme, and in a strange and somewhat morbid twist, season themselves while they're still alive. If you are vegetarian, vegan or have other dietary requirements, just contact the provider in advance and let them know; your needs will be taken care of. This is an excellent tour to unwind, relax and get to know Iceland and Icelanders better. The country's cuisine is exquisite, and its beers delicious. Don't miss out on this cultural experience; raise your glass and say 'Skál!' (Icelandic for 'cheers!') with your friends and some locals. Check availability by choosing a date.

You can choose between a feast of crab; shellfish; Icelandic lobster, which is also known as langoustine; or fried cod with shrimps. After dinner, you’ll start the hunt for the elusive Northern Lights. You’ll head out to the wild nature of the Reykjanes Peninsula in search of these dancing lights.

Reykjavik Walking Tour | English Speaking Guideance

Come and explore Reykjavik city centre and it's major landmarks on this easy and fun walking tour. You'll hear the story of how Reykjavik came to be, from the early settlers and farming, and how Reykjavik formed first through trade and small-scale industry. One such industry was a wool factory established by the father of Reykjavik, Skúli Magnúson in the 18th century. Our tour will start from his statue, in the Fógetagarður square, named in his honour. A century later, Reykjavik was transformed into a fishing village as a few thousand fishermen moved there. You will learn about the architecture of the city centre and visit it's oldest part, Grjótaþorp, the first residential area. The tour also visits the city's oldest house which dates back to the Danish merchants who monopolized trade for almost two centuries.

The guide gives commentary on whaling, and whales in general and Iceland’s policies concerning protection of their territorial waters and fishing grounds. Afterwards, we'll visit a seafood restaurant, which has an interesting backstory; it came to be through an old fisherman Kjartan who started out as a fishmonger on that very harbour. Later, we head back to town visit Ingólfstorg square and learn about the first settlers.

This tour gives you a chance to be a part of the locals, and live as they have done throughout the ages during the most rewarding time of the year: The lambing season.

How much you like to be involved is your choice but we do recommend at least a cuddle! At Brekkubær farm, farmer Ásgeir Arngrímsson and his family will guide you through the spring chores, and you are welcome to help with the more adorable tasks, such as bottle feeding lambs and assisting them in latching.

Christmas Walking Tour in Hafnarfjordur

Immerse yourself in Icelandic Christmas culture with this wonderful walking tour. This excursion should not be missed by any who want to get into the festive spirit in a winter wonderland. This tour begins when you meet your guide at the town hall of Hafnarfjörður, Iceland’s third largest population centre. This town is deeply entwined with Iceland’s history, folklore and customs, making it the perfect place to get to know how this nation celebrates Christmas time. Your guide will then take you on an immersive walk through the town. You’ll stop to meet locals at different points, in their decorated homes and businesses, to be given some wonderful Advent goodies and to hear how they celebrate. Of course, on this tour, you’ll get to see all of Hafnarfjörður’s highlights, such as its harbour, the Viking Village, its rows of old houses decked in lights, and the ‘elf gardens’. These gardens are said to contain Hidden People, an elven race who live in a parallel world, renowned for their mysterious and often vengeful behaviour. This town has many spots where it is said that these elves reside, and your guide will tell you all about their influence on Icelandic culture. This is not the only side of the folklore you’ll become well-acquainted with, however; Iceland’s ideas of ‘Santa’ are far from our own. Rather than one jolly man, Iceland has thirteen trolls they associate with this time; on each day of Christmas, one descends the mountains to wreck havoc or play pranks on the locals. Called the Yule Lads, they are often today represented as mischievous, wearing the classic red and white outfit associated with Santa, although historically they were malicious and wore dirty rags. The Yule Lads have an evil ogress for a mother, Gryla, who feasts on children, and she has an enormous pet nicknamed the Christmas Cat, who does the same but only to kids who don’t get clothes on the 25th; the reason this became part of the folklore was to ensure that everyone finished their weaving, sewing and knitting before the winter was in full swing. Towards the end of the tour, you will head to the decorated house of a local, where you can get some refreshments and the chance to ask any more questions you have. Don’t miss this chance to feel the festive spirit on a walking tour in Hafnarfjörður. Check availability by choosing a date.

Defending the Caveman | A Comedy for the Ages

Come by for some Comedy and some brew! At Ægisgarður Brewery, the Broadway Hit Show and Olivier Award Winning comedy "Defending the Caveman" has found its place. A world-renowned one-man show, performed and produced in over 50 countries and over 25 languages, this show is one of the most successful comedies in Iceland, exploring the gender gap and communication between the sexes, be it between married couples or random strangers. The show has both made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the "Longest Running Solo Show in Broadway History" and received numerous awards, including the Sir Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy. This new production of the show with local actor Jóel Sæmundsson starring in the leading role of the Caveman is an updated and modernised version. Joel premiered his English language version in Las Vegas earlier this year with great success and standing ovations! Icelandic born and once a slightly promising basketball player, Jóel Sæmundsson turned his hand to comedy and dramatic arts in 2005. Having graduated from U.K.’s Rose Bruford College in 2009, Joel has appeared in various theatrical performances, tv-shows and movies in his native Iceland. Joel co-starred in the most popular TV-series ever in Iceland, “Trapped”. With many years of experience in performance, Joel has just completed his first leading role in Swedish motion picture, “Pity the lovers”. Joel exclusively eats fast food and drinks beer. He is a bit artsy, but on the inside, he’s just another Caveman. This show is a local production, brought to you by Theater Mogul Productions. Based in Reykjavik Iceland, Óskar Eiríksson, along with partners, started the company in 1999. Since then they've been mounting, investing, co-producing and producing successful theatre productions internationally, from the USA to South America, Europe, Asia and South Africa. Don't miss a great evening out! Celebrate your inner caveman, drinks some beer and come and see the show! Check availability by choosing a date.

New Years Eve | Three Bonfires and Firework Spectacular

Enjoy one of the most spectacular firework shows on earth in a beautiful location this New Years Eve. This opportunity should not be missed by those who want to witness an unreal display to say goodbye to the last year and to usher in the new. At the beginning of this tour, you’ll be picked up in a minibus with a small group, and will be driven to three different bonfires in Reykjavík. At each, you can expect hundreds of Icelanders celebrating, playing music and singing songs. Many will be in traditional regalia, and many more setting off some early fireworks, giving a hint of what is to come. As you enjoy the festivities at each, your friendly, local guide will tell you about the Christmas and New Year customs, such as the food that is eaten and the associated folklore. New Years Eve, for example, is said to be the day that the Hidden People, or Icelandic Elves, move house, and are most often seen on Iceland’s lonely roads. When it comes close to midnight, your guide will take you to a very special viewing location in the city where you will have a perfect view of the whole skyline. When the clock strikes twelve, prepare for the show of your life. In the buildup to New Year, Icelanders all over the country, from all backgrounds, stock up on fireworks, buying them from the rescue teams that sell them to raise funds. In Reykjavík, therefore, tens of thousands of households will have each bought dozens of fireworks. When they set them off, it is in a random display that sets the entire sky alight. You’ll toast the New Year beneath a canopy of colour, enjoy the incredible show, then be escorted back towards your accommodation (or to the bars, if your night is just beginning). Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to see one of the world’s best firework shows. Check availability by choosing a date.

Three-Course Home Cooked Christmas Dinner in Hafnarfjordur

Enjoy a traditional Icelandic Christmas dinner in the home of a local in the town of Hafnarfjörður. This experience should not be missed by those who want to learn about this nation’s Yuletide culture, nor those who want to make the very most of the happiest time of year. Christmas is a beautiful festival in Iceland, with the snow and ice creating a winter wonderland and the long nights brightened by colourful lights. What makes it even better is the traditional cuisine and the associating culture of storytelling and folklore. You’ll arrive at the house of your friendly host in the evening for a three-course dinner and a night of fascinating conversation. You’ll get to taste how, in spite of being a barren island, Icelanders managed to pull together every resource they had to make an array of unique and festive dishes. You’ll also get to hear how Christmas here differs from the rest of the world. Take, for example, the friendly Santa Claus known around much of the west. Icelanders never celebrated him; instead, they feared the thirteen Yule Lads, who would descend from the mountains one by one on the days leading up to the 24th. These Yule Lads were filthy, mischievous trolls, each with a unique way of inspiring fear. Some, such as Spoon Licker, were simply disgusting, while others, such as Window Peeper, were rather terrifying. Their mother, Gryla, was worse than all of them combined, with her taste for the flesh of children. Her huge Christmas Cat had the same appetite, but only went for the young ones who got no clothes as presents. This story likely developed as a way to motivate children into finishing their sewing before the season. The fact that this delicious meal is enjoyed in Hafnarfjörður will help add to the intrigue of Iceland’s folklore. Often called ‘the Town of Elves’, this settlement has many sites said to conceal the country’s Hidden People, has long held onto its belief in Iceland’s mystery, and is surrounded in lava fields, the caves of which are said to have once held trolls. After enjoying three sensational courses, you’ll get to open and take home a surprise present under the Christmas tree, and enjoy some Icelandic festive music. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to enjoy a traditional Christmas meal in Iceland with a local. Check availability by choosing a date.

Art Walk Through Hafnarfjordur

Make the most of the thriving art scene in Iceland with this excellent walking tour through the country’s third largest town, Hafnarfjörður.

Hafnafjörður is a place steeped in art, history, culture and folklore, and boasts beautiful surrounding nature with spectacular sea views and great expanses of lava. The settlement is often nicknamed the town of elves or vikings, or else the town on the lava, and on this tour, you will learn why. The excursion begins when you meet your friendly local guide at the town hall. From here, you will set off on a three and a half hour, gentle walk around Hafnrafjörður, stopping at many sites. Your guide knows all the best artists in the town, and will introduce you to a variety of painters, sculptors, designers and craftsmen. They will show you around their studios and galleries, discussing how they work and the influence this country’s nature and culture has on their pieces. There are also many public works of art on display to be admired. Though this tour will focus largely on meeting these creative people and learning about their work, no tour of Hafnarfjörður would be complete without learning about its history as an early Viking settlement; many of the buildings here are designed to resemble their architectural style. You’ll also learn about the folklore deeply entwined in this town. Hafnarfjörður is renowned for its population of Hidden People, mysterious and often dangerous elves who live parallel to humans in a secret world. You guide will tell you many tales associated with them, and you’ll get to visit an area where they are said to still linger out of site, the Elf Gardens.

Þingvellir was used as a filming location for several scenes in the series, especially those featuring the White Walkers. To immerse yourself in the atmosphere of Westeros, you will have a walk in a gorge in Þingvellir, where the European and the North American tectonic plates are drifting apart. After the national park, you will visit Almannagjá gorge, which was used to film scenes depicting the Eyrie's Bloody Gate, and Hengilssvæðið mountain, the filming location of the dramatic and brutal fighting scene between Brienne of Tarth and The Hound. The next highlight of this fascinating tour will be a visit to Stöng, a preserved farmstead with several Viking-age longhouses. This is where Olly's little farming village, just south of the Wall, was attacked by Ygritte and her wildling skirmishers. After Stöng, depending on season and weather, we will drive to the fantastic Þjórsárdalur valley, which sports two amazing waterfalls. There is the breathtaking Háifoss—the second highest waterfall in Iceland—and the mysterious Hjálparfoss, surrounded by several rock troll formations. This is also known as the waterfall of friendship, since, in reality, these are two waterfalls that connect into one. The last highlight of the tour before returning to Reykjavík will be a visit to the Secret Lagoon, where you can kick back in a steamy geothermal pool after a busy day full of attractions. If you're not already a fan of the show, there's a significant probability that you'll become one after visiting all these fantastic natural places. Check availability by choosing a date.

Christmas Walking Tour in Hafnarfjordur

Immerse yourself in Icelandic Christmas culture with this wonderful walking tour. This excursion should not be missed by any who want to get into the festive spirit in a winter wonderland. This tour begins when you meet your guide at the town hall of Hafnarfjörður, Iceland’s third largest population centre. This town is deeply entwined with Iceland’s history, folklore and customs, making it the perfect place to get to know how this nation celebrates Christmas time. Your guide will then take you on an immersive walk through the town. You’ll stop to meet locals at different points, in their decorated homes and businesses, to be given some wonderful Advent goodies and to hear how they celebrate. Of course, on this tour, you’ll get to see all of Hafnarfjörður’s highlights, such as its harbour, the Viking Village, its rows of old houses decked in lights, and the ‘elf gardens’. These gardens are said to contain Hidden People, an elven race who live in a parallel world, renowned for their mysterious and often vengeful behaviour. This town has many spots where it is said that these elves reside, and your guide will tell you all about their influence on Icelandic culture. This is not the only side of the folklore you’ll become well-acquainted with, however; Iceland’s ideas of ‘Santa’ are far from our own. Rather than one jolly man, Iceland has thirteen trolls they associate with this time; on each day of Christmas, one descends the mountains to wreck havoc or play pranks on the locals. Called the Yule Lads, they are often today represented as mischievous, wearing the classic red and white outfit associated with Santa, although historically they were malicious and wore dirty rags. The Yule Lads have an evil ogress for a mother, Gryla, who feasts on children, and she has an enormous pet nicknamed the Christmas Cat, who does the same but only to kids who don’t get clothes on the 25th; the reason this became part of the folklore was to ensure that everyone finished their weaving, sewing and knitting before the winter was in full swing.

The show has both made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the "Longest Running Solo Show in Broadway History" and received numerous awards, including the Sir Laurence Olivier Award for Best Comedy.

New Years Eve | Three Bonfires and Firework Spectacular

Enjoy one of the most spectacular firework shows on earth in a beautiful location this New Years Eve. This opportunity should not be missed by those who want to witness an unreal display to say goodbye to the last year and to usher in the new. At the beginning of this tour, you’ll be picked up in a minibus with a small group, and will be driven to three different bonfires in Reykjavík. At each, you can expect hundreds of Icelanders celebrating, playing music and singing songs. Many will be in traditional regalia, and many more setting off some early fireworks, giving a hint of what is to come. As you enjoy the festivities at each, your friendly, local guide will tell you about the Christmas and New Year customs, such as the food that is eaten and the associated folklore. New Years Eve, for example, is said to be the day that the Hidden People, or Icelandic Elves, move house, and are most often seen on Iceland’s lonely roads. When it comes close to midnight, your guide will take you to a very special viewing location in the city where you will have a perfect view of the whole skyline. When the clock strikes twelve, prepare for the show of your life. In the buildup to New Year, Icelanders all over the country, from all backgrounds, stock up on fireworks, buying them from the rescue teams that sell them to raise funds. In Reykjavík, therefore, tens of thousands of households will have each bought dozens of fireworks. When they set them off, it is in a random display that sets the entire sky alight. You’ll toast the New Year beneath a canopy of colour, enjoy the incredible show, then be escorted back towards your accommodation (or to the bars, if your night is just beginning). Don’t miss this amazing opportunity to see one of the world’s best firework shows. Check availability by choosing a date.

Three-Course Home Cooked Christmas Dinner in Hafnarfjordur

Enjoy a traditional Icelandic Christmas dinner in the home of a local in the town of Hafnarfjörður. This experience should not be missed by those who want to learn about this nation’s Yuletide culture, nor those who want to make the very most of the happiest time of year. Christmas is a beautiful festival in Iceland, with the snow and ice creating a winter wonderland and the long nights brightened by colourful lights. What makes it even better is the traditional cuisine and the associating culture of storytelling and folklore. You’ll arrive at the house of your friendly host in the evening for a three-course dinner and a night of fascinating conversation. You’ll get to taste how, in spite of being a barren island, Icelanders managed to pull together every resource they had to make an array of unique and festive dishes. You’ll also get to hear how Christmas here differs from the rest of the world. Take, for example, the friendly Santa Claus known around much of the west. Icelanders never celebrated him; instead, they feared the thirteen Yule Lads, who would descend from the mountains one by one on the days leading up to the 24th. These Yule Lads were filthy, mischievous trolls, each with a unique way of inspiring fear. Some, such as Spoon Licker, were simply disgusting, while others, such as Window Peeper, were rather terrifying. Their mother, Gryla, was worse than all of them combined, with her taste for the flesh of children. Her huge Christmas Cat had the same appetite, but only went for the young ones who got no clothes as presents. This story likely developed as a way to motivate children into finishing their sewing before the season. The fact that this delicious meal is enjoyed in Hafnarfjörður will help add to the intrigue of Iceland’s folklore. Often called ‘the Town of Elves’, this settlement has many sites said to conceal the country’s Hidden People, has long held onto its belief in Iceland’s mystery, and is surrounded in lava fields, the caves of which are said to have once held trolls. After enjoying three sensational courses, you’ll get to open and take home a surprise present under the Christmas tree, and enjoy some Icelandic festive music. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to enjoy a traditional Christmas meal in Iceland with a local. Check availability by choosing a date.

Art Walk Through Hafnarfjordur

Make the most of the thriving art scene in Iceland with this excellent walking tour through the country’s third largest town, Hafnarfjörður.

Hafnafjörður is a place steeped in art, history, culture and folklore, and boasts beautiful surrounding nature with spectacular sea views and great expanses of lava. The settlement is often nicknamed the town of elves or vikings, or else the town on the lava, and on this tour, you will learn why. The excursion begins when you meet your friendly local guide at the town hall. From here, you will set off on a three and a half hour, gentle walk around Hafnrafjörður, stopping at many sites. Your guide knows all the best artists in the town, and will introduce you to a variety of painters, sculptors, designers and craftsmen. They will show you around their studios and galleries, discussing how they work and the influence this country’s nature and culture has on their pieces. There are also many public works of art on display to be admired. Though this tour will focus largely on meeting these creative people and learning about their work, no tour of Hafnarfjörður would be complete without learning about its history as an early Viking settlement; many of the buildings here are designed to resemble their architectural style. You’ll also learn about the folklore deeply entwined in this town. Hafnarfjörður is renowned for its population of Hidden People, mysterious and often dangerous elves who live parallel to humans in a secret world. You guide will tell you many tales associated with them, and you’ll get to visit an area where they are said to still linger out of site, the Elf Gardens.

There is the breathtaking Háifoss—the second highest waterfall in Iceland—and the mysterious Hjálparfoss, surrounded by several rock troll formations.
