Tucked away on a quiet street in Hafnarfjörður is the enchanting Hellisgerði Park. A pathway twists beside the lovely pond and through the lava rocks that buckle and fold into tiny caves and mysterious nooks. Draped in emerald and olive-coloured moss or covered in a wash of white snow, the rocks and the stories of this park are captivating. This magical place is known for its huldufólk (hidden people: elves, dwarves and other mystical creatures).
There are two tours available: The Elf Walk Tour which focuses on the sincere spiritualit and belief system associated with huldufólk and The Hidden Worlds tour which focuses primarily on the colourful history and folklore associated with huldufólk.
