Over half of the Icelandic nation believes that elves exist.
In fact, you may have heard of roads being re-routed to avoid disturbing elf habitations, because if there is something that elves do not like it’s being uprooted from their homes.
Intrigued? Want to know more about these magical creatures and have questions that can only be answered by an expert? You’re in luck.
For 30 years Álfaskólinn (The ElfSchool) has been teaching it’s students about Iceland’s huldufólk (hidden people) that includes elves, gnomes, dwarfs, fairies, trolls and mountain spirits.
Those who have received their Elfschool certificate rave about the experience and describe a day full of storytelling, and local lore alongside the best pancakes and jam in the country.
