Iceland has a lot of funky myths and legends. Our folklore is pretty dark and twisted and this also applies to Christmas traditions.

Follow us on a journey through Iceland’s dark and twisted Christmas traditions and folklore. Walk with us through the colourful streets of Reykjavík, past popular landmarks as we tell you stories about the Icelandic Santas, Christmas cat, hidden people, traditional foods and Christmas traditions. We will also share stories with you that show the grim and murky side of Christmas in Iceland.

During our walk, we will visit some Reykjavík landmarks as well as lesser-known parts of the city.

Please note

Voucher information: Sorry, but we will need you to print a paper version of your booking voucher (we're working on changing this). At this time no refund can be given for customers without a printed copy of their voucher.

So there’s no last-minute rush please arrive at the start point 10 mins early. 

No age limit but children under 6 years old might find this tour a little longer to walk so make arrangements (stroller etc), or be prepared to carry them for part of the way.

It gets very cold in Iceland, so remember to dress warmly and don't forget your gloves and hat.
