For Iceland Elves in Hafnarfjörður

The Elf Garden has a centre for Icelandic Elves and Huldufolk (Hidden People of Iceland) which was closed when we visited. Clearly, this Elf Garden has got extraordinary Elf Tea which tragically we additionally passed up.

Frankly, the request really isn’t the explanation. Legendary individuals and huldufolk in Iceland is a piece of the country’s arrangement of encounters and inheritance. There’s nothing wrong with being useful and inventive all the while!

Today, the covered people of Iceland epitomize a wistfulness for the old ways. In light of everything, as demonstrated by Icelandic old stories, the huldufolk of Iceland were basically farmers and fisher just like normal people

The confidence in Iceland mythical beings and invisible individuals affects intellect too. For instance, once in a while streets in Iceland are rerouted so they can dodge certain particular zones.

We really didn’t meet any individuals however who had any affirmed Icelandic mythical people sightings!
