Summer solstice walk – a celebration of life and culture!

21.06.2015 20:00 — 22:00

We’ll celebrate sum­mer solstice with a walk on Videy Island on June 21st. One of our tour gui­des will be Þór Jakobsson meteorolog­ist who will tell us about the solstice, its festi­vals and rituals which vary from cult­ure to cult­ure. This year there will be a talk from Margrét Leifsdóttir who is a health councillor. She‘ll talk about how we can improve our lives with healthy living for mind and body.  By a bon-fire on the beach there will be group sing­ing and refres­h­ments for sale for thir­sty wal­kers before we sail back home.
