Iceland

Did you know about half the population of Iceland believes in elves? Icelandic folklore states that these “hidden people” have been a part of the Icelandic culture for years. Our trip to Iceland in November of 2012 sure was adventurous! Even though we didn’t see any elves or their invisible homes in the diverse landscape, you could sense their magical presence. If you happen to travel through Iceland keep your eye out for elf houses and gardens. And be careful not to disturb them! Read an amusing story here about the theory of elves in Iceland and how they are still protected today!
