The Icelandic Adventure Tour

  • Submitted: 18th November 2016

This weekend, readers and authors a plenty have travelled to Iceland for the coldest chilliest crime festival there ever was. Not able to be there? Or are you there but with a bit of spare time to explore?You could do worse than to mix it with a literary adventure by selecting your activity of choice and then finding the book to fit…

On this Icelandic adventure, we’ve got glacial climbing, sailing, hunting for Icelandic trolls and even have time for a cuppa in Siglufjörður with that lovely Ragnar.

The Icelandic Adventure Tour – choose a destination or a rough and ready activity referenced in the novels and let’s have the best literary adventure yet!


Highlights include:

See the seals! Well not quite perhaps – Kópavogur – Frozen Out – Quentin Bates

Climbing! Climb the imposing and majestic Perlan in central Reykavik . Careful as it’s ‘A Place To Bury Strangers’ apparently

Trekking Don’t get lost in this remote landscape will you? – Kornsarvatn – Burial Rites – Hannah Kent

Refreshments! – Pop in for a coffee with Ari – this is where he lives in Snowblind 

So whether you go to Iceland for real or via a great book, there’s lots to see and do. All costs are included in the price of the book so you can really travel around the country the Bear Grylls way and live to tell the tale and keep hold of your wallet.

There’s something for everyone and if you climb to the northern point of the country, there’s a story of folklore that trickles down across the entire country making you want to believe in the magic of Iceland

Happy travelling!
