Hafnarfjördur is renowned for having one of Iceland’s largest colonies of elves, dwarves and other spiritual beings, which (translating from the Icelandic) are collectively called “Hidden Folk”. Centuries-old folklore says that whole families of these beings live in the rocks that are part of the town’s centre, and we do not doubt it at all.
The Hidden Worlds tour takes you to their homesites. It stops at places like Hellisgerdi Park and the base of the cliff, Hamarinn, where it is said the Royal Family of the Hidden Folk lives. Along the way, the guide retells stories about the magical hidden worlds and describes the town’s history and its development in harmony with the Hidden Folk.
