Viking trails through the holy hills and secular pits

1.00

Throughout this trip we will give you an introduction to how central Þórsnes (Thor’s peninsula) and Breiðafjörður (The Broad Bay) is in Icelandic history and culture. We start the voyage on a Viking boat to the wild life; sea birds (eider, cormorant, puffins, fulmars...) and abundance of fish, mainly cod. After we have spent about 1, 5 hour on sea we take on land and you have two options:

A)      You walk back with the ladies Theo and Maria and they take you through a landscape of local tastes and smells in their outdoor kitchen.

B)      You get a bike and we travel further into the saga-landscape with battles, mysteries, elves, trolls and other weirdoes.

In this expedition you are not just a passenger or a tourist in the 21st century. You are part of a team of explorers and a crew on a Viking ship. We approach the land almost like the settlers did over 1000 years ago. The Sagas comes to life and we can imagine we are a horde of Vikings looking for opportunities in an unknown terrain and for the threatening enemies on the other side of the hill or the fjord. 

The tours take approximately 3 hours each. A starts at 10 am and B start at 2 pm.

Group size: Max. 8 people. Minimum 3.
