The Elfin Tour


Elves are important creatures in Iceland. They get to decide where roads can go and houses can be built. On this tour we see some places populated by these special creatures, the 'hidden people', but as they are hidden we will not actually meet them! We pass the small cleft Alfakví and the old sheep’s house that cannot be removed without serious consequences. Some elves are musical; Skjólklettur is the place of the elves’ church where singing has been heard. On our way to the elfin hill, Einbúi, populated by friendly and sometimes singing elves, we also experience excellent riding trails for trying the special, smooth gait of the Icelandic horse, “tölt”.
