Before your trip, we suggest reading at least one of the many Icelandic Sagas which cast a good light on our history.

To name a few, we recommend the Settler’s exhibition (named 874 +- 2, referencing the year Iceland was settled), the Reykjavik Art Gallery and the now world-famous penis museum - yes, you read that right.
