You will learn about how the local people cope with the darkest period of the year. The fact is that most of us do really appreciate the Advent time, prior Christmas. Since we have only 4-5 hours daylight we do many things to make the time meaningful and enchanting. I will show you and tell you about some of those traditions, the old ones as well as the modern ones. This walking tour will give you an unique opportunity to experience the "inside local culture", meet and talk to the locals and be offered some hot drinks and cookies. You will also hear some Icelandic Christmas music, enjoy walking in the streets with old houses and trees decorated with Christmas lights. We will walk to Hamarinn a supposedly Elf-Palace with a great view over the town and the harbour. I will tell you many stories, f.ex. about the Elfs, the 13 Yule lads, their awful mother and her husband and not the least about the big, black Christmas cat.
